(Excerpts from the Statement of Support on the closure of the dumpsite last March 30, 2021 and the Inauguration of the MRF: by Engr. William P. Cuñado, Director, DENR-EMB Central Office)
“I would like to congratulate Mayor Remollo, for the first MRF in the whole Philippines that generates an income of P 500, 000/month for properly managing the garbage.
This is a great accomplishment today. I will announce this nationwide, in our website, in the newspapers.
Daghan kaayong salamat sa inyong gihimong demonstration especially sa Council nga nag-suport ni Mayor Remollo ug sa wala nag-suport nga wala pa mutuo and I hope na mutuo namo that there is a solution sa garbage.
And this solution is not an expense but an income to the City of Dumaguete. Now we have here the best technology of the Solid Waste Management in Dumaguete City.
I would like to ask our DENR Secretary Jim Sampulna to give a commendation to Mayor Remollo and City Council for a job well done!”
