Tublay starts color–coding of chicken dung delivery trucks
by Ofelia C. Empian

For easier identification, all businessmen engaged in the chicken dung trade were assigned colors to be plastered in their trucks as part of the effort to organize and improve the trade in Benguet.

Provincial Veterinarian Miriam Tiongan said the colors to be assigned to trucks engaged in the chicken dung trade will depend on the area where they operate.

Tiongan said the stickers will be pasted on the windshields of the trucks of the eight chicken dung traders operating in Tublay, as agreed during the previous consultations conducted with the chicken dung traders and the municipal government.

“We started with Tublay since it is the town with the largest number of chicken dung operators,” Tiongan said. 

She said the effort would make it easier for the provincial government to monitor the chicken dung traders in the province.

In Barangay Ambassador, the color codes are violet for those operating under Agnes Duyao, yellow for Blandina Ta-ao, and dark blue for Betty Waclin. 

In Barangay Caponga, all truckers under Melecio Tacay were assigned with the green color; GS Arciga, yellow green; Robert Baniwas, sky blue; Lucia Catanes, orange; and Philip Balangue (Northern), red.

Tiongan said they will also start the color-coding scheme in other municipalities engaged in the chicken dung trade, including the vegetable producing towns of Atok and Buguias.

She added the scheme is also in line with the Quarantine Ordinance, which provides for the strict monitoring of all animal products and its by-products, such as chicken dung, from entering the province.

Tublay Mayor Armand Lauro said they are currently building the database of chicken dung traders in the locality.

He added the town has not been remiss in reminding  the chicken dung traders of their responsibilities.

“We ask for their cooperation in improving the chicken dung industry and also to avoid petitions from the community,” Lauro said.

Those engaged in the business were reminded to maintain sanitation in their areas at all times, to avoid causing obstruction on the road especially when loading and unloading their supplies with their clients, and to police their own ranks to maintain peace and security in the locality.

He added traders who do not cover their trucks while  transporting chicken dung are apprehended. 

Most of the dung products come from the Central Luzon, which is being hauled off by traders and bring it to various trading areas in the locality. Seventy percent of the chicken dung products are delivered to Benguet and 30 percent to Mountain Province. The dung is used as soil conditioner in various upland vegetable farmers in the Cordillera.
