La Trinidad’s sanitary landfill ready for use by month’s end
by Ofelia C. Empian

The construction of the engineered sanitary landfill located at Barangay Alno, La Trinidad, Benguet is projected to wrap up by the end of the month to be used by the town.

Mayor Romeo Salda said the local government along with the Environment Management Bureau recently inspected Cell three located at the town’s solid waste management facility in Alno and the inspection showed the necessity of setting up equipment such as steamrollers.

He said the LGU is waiting for the final report so it can work on the findings.

He said the canals from the landfill going to the leachate pond are being constructed in the 4,000-square meter landfill.

Salda said the LGU has also gone stricter in implementing its garbage collection policy, especially its segregation-at-source program.

He said the presence of the bantay basura or people who are monitoring the compliance of residents to waste segregation has greatly helped in reducing residual wastes.

The bantay basura were stationed at the 160 collection points in the 16 barangays of La Trinidad where they check wastes being dropped and issue penalties for violators. The citation tickets have corresponding fines to be paid at the treasurer’s office.

Salda said the issuance of citation tickets has forced residents to adhere to garbage segregation laws.

A P2-million budget from the Department of Labor and Employment was used to pay for the contractual workers, which will temporarily be composed of barangay residents.

“We hope this will continue, that’s why we have already set aside funds for the bantay basura,” he said.

He said they have requested DOLE for additional funding of the bantay basura.

The P60-M Alno landfill was opened in 2007. The landfill has a material recovery facility, leachate pond, and bio-reactor equipment for composting.

In recent years, the landfill has been filled to its capacity due to the dumping of mixed wastes. Cracks have likewise been observed at its retaining wall, which prompted the LGU to haul out garbage in the meantime.
