Agencies told to submit list of accredited toxic waste haulers
by PIO release

A city councilor wants the Department of Environment and Natural Resources and the Department of Health Cordillera offices to regularly provide the local government with records of waste transporters and waste treatment facilities and other reports required of health-care waste generators and transporter, storage, and disposal facility operators in the city.

Councilor Peter Fianza, in a proposed resolution, said the city government can help in the implementation of other mandated actions under its Environment Code if it will be provided with reports required of health-care waste generators and DENR-permitted transfer, storage, and disposal (TSD) facility operators, such as the waste transport record and the registry of waste transporters and those treating wastes as directed under Republic Act 6969 or the Toxic Substances and Hazardous and Nuclear Wastes Control Act of 1990.

The city government has volunteered to coordinate with the DENR and the DOH in monitoring the compliance of hazardous and toxic waste generators in storage and disposal with RA 6969 and the DENR-DOH Administrative Order s. 2005 as provided under Section 211 of the city’s Environment Code.

Despite the stringent provisions, the city council passed Resolution 264, s. 2018 urging the DOH and the DENR to monitor, inspect, and evaluate waste disposal of hospitals in the Cordillera.

It added the waste disposal of hospitals referred to in the resolution pertains to health-care waste, which the DENR-DOH order particularly addressed using policies and guidelines on effective and proper handling, collection, transport, treatment, storage, and disposal.

Under the joint order, the DENR through the Environment Management Bureau is tasked to formulate policies, standards, and guidelines on the transport, treatment, storage, and disposal of health-care waste and oversee the compliance by generators, transporters, treatment, storage, and disposal facility operators with laws and local policies.

The DOH is tasked to formulate policies, standards, guidelines, systems, and procedures in the management of health-care waste, provide technical assistance in the preparation of health-care waste management plan as a requirement for licensing or the renewal thereof, and require all health-care waste TSD facility operators and health-care waste generators with on-site waste treatment facilities to use DOH Bureau of Health Devices and Technology-registered equipment or devices for the treatment of health-care waste.
