Mayor-elect Jonjon Ferrer said he will “focus on the local waste problem in his first 100 days” as the city spends an estimated P250 million per year on garbage disposal alone.
According to Ferrer, the local government is also studying to “reduce the amount of waste disposal” in the city, in conjunction with adjusting waste segregation from the household level.
“I encourage all the residents to continue practicing ‘waste segregation’ from each household, it helps our environment and waste disposal process. This is a big thing to reduce the waste to be collected by garbage trucks and at the same time you can sell used bottles, newspapers, cartons, scrap steel and plastics,” said Jon Jon Ferrer.
