Use of 2 ERS machines beneficial for city
by PIO release

The city government is benefitting from the operation of the Environmental Recycling system (ERS) machines that were purchased to process a portion of the city’s biodegradable waste to high grade compost several years back.

General Services Officer Romeo D. Concio said processing of 48 tons of biodegradable waste by the ERS machines daily significantly reduced the volume of solid waste hauled out by the city to a sanitary landfill in Capas, Tarlac.

He said the volume of garbage hauled out by the city daily is approximately 150 to 160 tons, excluding the 48 tons of biodegradable waste processed by the ERS machines daily.

Concio added the cost of hauling the 48 tons of biodegradable waste to Tarlac daily is about P24 million annually, including the freight cost and tipping fees paid to the landfill operator.

“Hauling is still the remaining feasible option,” Concio said as the city is still working on  the integrated solid waste disposal facility either in Antamok or in Sto. Tomas School area.

He said the P12M spent by the city for the maintenance, operation, and fuel expenses of the ERS machines is lower compared to the P24M spent if 48 tons of biodegradable waste will be hauled out.

The ERS machines will also be part of the solid waste disposal facility once established.

This year, the city allocated P85M for hauling from the P1.776 billion budget.

Concio urged residents to cooperate with the segregation-at-source policy.

Concio remains optimistic that the city government will be able to realize  its long-term solid waste disposal plans.
