Baguio, Itogon dialogue on waste disposal site in BC eyed
by PIO release

Mayor Mauricio G. Domogan is pushing for a dialogue between the city government and officials of Itogon, Benguet relative to the planned establishment of the city’s integrated solid waste disposal facility within the property of the Benguet Corporation (BC) in its former Antamok open pit.

Domogan said it is best for city officials to dialogue with their counterparts to address the issues regarding the plan.

Earlier, Itogon officials expressed their objection to the plan of Baguio to establish its proposed integrated solid waste disposal facility within a portion of the 29.22-hectare BC property, which was the subject of a deed of usufruct between the mining company and the city government.

Under the agreement, the local government will use the area for 25 years for free.

“We believe that when a property is titled in the name of a natural or juridical person, it is imprescriptible and indefeasible considering that it was already removed from the alienable and disposable public land,” Domogan said.

He added there is no need to debate about the matter because local officials are willing to dialogue with their counterparts in Itogon to discuss the intricacies of the planned put-up of the city’s integrated solid waste disposal facility.

He said BC also donated to Itogon a portion of its property for the establishment of the town’s temporary residual containment area. The area is near the site planned for the city’s integrated disposal system.

Among the components of the proposed integrated solid waste disposal facility include the put-up of a centralized materials recovery facility, an engineered sanitary landfill, an anaerobic digester, environmental recycling system machines, a medical and health waste treatment plant and a special waste treatment plant.

Domogan said hauling of the city’s residual waste remains the best intervention to Baguio’s garbage concerns while the local government is finding a permanent solution to the city’s solid waste woes.
