La Trinidad Mayor Romeo Salda said the municipal government is eyeing the purchase of two additional garbage trucks.
The Benguet politiko said the move aims to improve the efficiency of garbage collection in La Trinidad.
Salda explained that the additional trucks will be used to collect garbage from the municipality’s 16 barangays as well as haul them to the Urdaneta sanitary landfill.
“We have to provide additional garbage trucks for our collectors to guarantee the timely collection of generated waste from our barangays because we do not want garbage to simply pile up and be an eye sore in public places around the locality,” he said.
Salda also said they are already fastracking the construction of the Alno controlled dumpsite’s cell number 3.
Once the construction is finished, Salda said La Trinidad will not have to haul garbage to Urdaneta.
