Quezon brgys pour P3.5M for sanitary landfill
QUEZON, Nueva Vizcaya, July 31(PIA) – Village officials of the 12 barangays in this town recently poured in P3.5 million for their Sanitary Landfill Project (SLP).
John Babliing, barangay captain of Runruno said the setting aside of the fund for the town’s (SLP) was the decision of the majority of barangay officials in order to support the Republic Act 9003 or the Solid Waste Management Act (SWMA).
“This was our agreement so that we can already go on with our SLP project that will benefit our barangays and constituents in general,” he said.
The fund was sourced from the 2018 Annual Social Development and Management Program(ASDMP) of the barangays funded yearly by the FCF Minerals Corporation.
Babliing said the SLP will be constructed based on the national standards set by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR).
He added that the SLP will address the environmental issues and concerns in the municipality as it will also serve as a major dumping site for the growing waste among the villagers including mining company’s waste.
