Dagupan City Mayor Belen Fernandez on June 3 called on incoming mayor Brian Lim to support the waste conversion project her administration started with Sure Global Corporation.
The Dagupan city government and Sure Global signed a Joint Venture Agreement in 2017 to convert platic wastes into fuel.
The project is set to start operations within the year.
“I urge the incoming administration to support this waste conversion project because the garbage problem will only be resolved through united efforts,” Fernandez said.
The outgoing mayor inherited a decades-old garbage problem when she was first elected in 2013.
