(Excerpts from the Statement of Support on the closure of the dumpsite last March 30, 2021 and the Inauguration of the MRF: by Engr. Paquito D. Melicor Jr., Regional Executive Director, DENR Region 7)
“We would want to show and tell everyone here right now that DENR fully supports kini nga project. I am very much inspired by the City of Dumaguete of what you have done so far in so less a time.
This facility (MRF) is very peculiar because it is not only a matter of segregating our wastes but it includes the treatment na unsaon siya na dili na hugaw, dili na makatakod, di na magdala ug kagaw and it also includes a portion unsaon siya pag despatsar, nga limpyo na.
So, in behalf of DENR Central Visayas Congratulations to Mayor Remollo, Vice-Mayor and the whole team of the City Government of Dumaguete!”
