Baguio City Mayor Mauricio Domogan said he intends to fast track the deed of usufruct for the part of Benguet Corporation’s Antamok open pit site so the city government can proceed with the development of its integrated solid waste disposal facility.
The Benguet Corporation earlier said it will be donating at least 24 hectares of the Antamok open pit site to the Baguio city government.
The planned solid waste facility seeks to address Baguio City’s garbage problem.
“We want to fastrack the finalization of the deed of usufruct so that we can start working on the ground works needed for the put up of the proposed integrated solid waste disposal facility which has been identified as the permanent solution to the city’s current garbage woes,” Domogan said.
“We want to work on the project once the survey shall have been completed,” he added.
