Sto Tomas is last option for city’s garbage disposal site
by Jane B. Cadalig

The city government will have to settle for the development of its property in Sto. Tomas-Apugan as the site of Baguio’s garbage disposal facility.

“We will have no choice but to develop Sto. Tomas even if it will cost us much,” said Mayor Mauricio Domogan in response to a question on the city government’s other options if the planned development by Benguet Corporation of its open pit in Itogon, Benguet for an engineered sanitary landfill and waste-to-energy facility does not push through.

Domogan said if the establishment of the waste disposal facility in Itogon does not materialize, the city government has no other option than to allot funds for the development of the city’s Integrated Solid Waste Disposal facility at Sto. Tomas.

“We will have to allot budget for the construction of a road going to the site and ESL and later on the establishment of the most appropriate technology that we could adopt to dispose and process our garbage,” he said.

The City Engineer’s Office estimated the city government would need P300 million for the road network within the proposed site for Baguio’s integrated garbage disposal area.

The city is also affected by the impending closure of the staging area of its accredited garbage hauler, MA Camilo Trucking and Freight Services. A local court has ordered the company to use its waste transfer area in La Trinidad until Dec. 22.

Domogan said if Camilo Trucking fails to identify a staging area before Dec. 22 and no bidder wins, the city government will again have no choice but to haul its own garbage.

If this happens, he said the city government will have to hire additional garbage trucks to haul Baguio’s garbage out to the lowlands.
