Urdaneta City willing to take in Baguio’s residual wastes
by PIO release

The city government is studying the possibility of transferring the disposal of its residual waste from the sanitary landfill of the Metro Clark Waste Management Corporation to the landfill operated by  Urdaneta City, Pangasinan.

Mayor Mauricio G. Domogan said  the operator of the sanitary landfill in Urdaneta City called him while he was on official overseas travel and said the local government is willing to accommodate the Baguio’s residual waste without increasing the P550 per ton tipping fee.

The Metro Clark Waste Management Corporation management earlier informed the mayor that it plans to increase the tipping fee it charges from P550 to P650 per ton starting January next year due to the reported increase in the cost of the operation.

Upon receipt of the offer, Domogan ordered the City General Services Office to evaluate the respective offers of the two landfill operators and recommend the most advantageous deal to the city.

“We want to study which of the offers is advantageous so that we can to sustain the hauling of the city’s residual waste while we are working on the realization of the waste-to-energy project that will be established within in the Antamok open pit area in coordination with the Benguet Corporation and its private partner, Goldrich Natural Exploration and Development, Inc.,” Domogan said.

He said if BC and its partner will not be able to resolve their legal differences, the city government is willing to take over the planned put-up of the sanitary landfill and the waste-to-energy facility, provided that the company will grant to the city the use of its property through a usufruct agreement for 25 years renewable for the same period.

BC Executive Director Isidro Alcantara assured the local governments of Baguio City and Itogon, Benguet that it will pursue the partnership for the realization of the sanitary landfill and waste-to-energy facility.

Domogan said the put-up of a waste-to-energy facility near the city will be the best solution for the city so that it no longer have to haul residual wastes to the lowlands. Without the facility, hauling remains the most feasible mode of waste disposal for the city.
