La Trinidad Mayor Romeo Salda has ordered stricter monitoring of the Puguis-Lamtang Road following the rampant dumping of waste in the area during the holiday season.
The Benguet politiko, according to a Sunstar report, recently inspected the area based on a tip from a concerned citizen.
Upon inspection, Salda discovered that “almost a ton of construction materials including biodegradable wastes and several documents” were dumped in the area.
Salda said forest guards will be assigned to monitor the Puguis-Lamtang Road to prevent the garbage dumping from happening again.
He also said signages will be installed along the road to remind the public not to litter.#
