EMB recommends construction of sump pond at old dumpsite
by PIO release

The city government is compliant with the writ of continuing mandamus, issued by the court several years ago, as per the notice of decree consent issued by the Court of Appeals former 6th Division.

In the agency’s second semester monitoring report on the status of the Irisan dumpsite, EMB-CAR Director Reynaldo S. Digamo said the facility is still closed for dumping; it is not receiving any new collected waste; and it is still secured with its perimeter fences which are thickly covered by vegetation.

However, the EMB-CAR recommended to the local government to establish or construct a sump pond to filter runoff water prior to its release to the lower canals, as well as periodic cleaning or clearing of the vegetation surrounding the runoff canals and perimeter fences; pursue the development of the site into an ecological wellness park and to rigorously pursue the memorandum of agreement for the establishment of the integrated solid waste management facility.

Digamo also reported that the retaining walls, its buttresses, perimeter canals, storm or surface runoff canals, fence, and other engineering structures are still intact with the presence of surface runoff within the site.

Digamo added that the Environmental Recycling System machines, is serving its purpose and the local government has contracted the services of a waste hauler to transport its residual waste to a sanitary landfill in the lowlands.

Digamo said the generated fertilizer from the ERS is being used for ornamental plants for the city’s parks and other private individuals requesting for the use of the compost and majority of the generated compost are for sale to private and public individuals, as well as offices.

As of Dec. 11, 2017, a total of 761 sacks, approximately 19,025 kilos, of compost are ready for distribution and 1,129 tons of raw compost are for processing.

Digamo commended the local government for its active participation in the various activities and projects on solid waste management with the city joining the regular recycling collection events, “Clean 500” and “Clean 1,000” events, active membership in the regional ecology center and hosting the “Adopt an estero” program as well as in pursuing the Bayan Ko, Linis Ko trash program of the agency.

The EMB-CAR report was transmitted to the Office of the Solicitor-General for submission to the CA in compliance with the conditions of the Writ of Kalikasan that was issued against the local government for its open dumpsite, following the Irisan trashsli.
