City mulls putting garbage bins back in main streets & parks
by PIO release

The city government is studying the possibility of bringing back the garbage bins in the city’s main roads and parks to prevent litter from being dumped anywhere that are an eyesore and health threats in the said places.

Mayor Mauricio G. Domogan said the garbage bins in major sidewalks and parks have been effective in the past but in most cases, undisciplined residents, business owners, and visitors use the bins, intended for wastes generated from the area, for household and establishment wastes.

“Much as we want to bring back the garbage bins in our sidewalks and parks, we want to make sure that these bins will only serve as containers for litters, not household and establishment waste. We call on our people to use garbage bins accordingly once placed in strategic places in the city,” Domogan said.

He said once TiongSan will begin distributing garbage bins it donated to the city, the bins will be placed in areas on an experimental basis to test the discipline of residents and visitors.

It was suggested that the garbage bins be placed in areas that could be monitored by close circuit television cameras to help authorities identify individuals who deliberately dump their household and establishment waste in the bins.

Netizens had actively posted the garbage situation in the city during and after the holidays, which showed overflowing garbage bins and unscrupulous dumping of waste anywhere, depicting a bad image for the city and reflects on the lack of discipline among the people, whether residents or visitors.
