Itogon Mayor Victorio Palangdan said the municipal government will begin hauling the town’s residual waste to the engineered sanitary landfill in Urdaneta City in Pangasinan.
This after the Environmental Management Bureau (EMB-Cordillera) ordered the closure of Itogon’s temporary residual containment area (TRCA) for some violations.
Palangdan said the municipal government will look for an alternative site for the TRCA.
He said the municipal government is set to allocate funds for the hauling of residual waste.
Palangdan also urged residents to actively reduce waste through proper garbage disposal.
