Central MRF to begin construction soon (to segregate city’s garbage)

City engineers and their assistants mark the layout and borders of the proposed P7Million Central Materials Recovery Facility that will be constructed inside the 8-hectare City Ecological Park and Waste Processing Facility in Barangay Candau-ay. The central MRF resembles a large gymnasium that can accommodate several garbage trucks that will unload the trash to be sorted as recyclables, organic waste, and non-recyclables or residual wastes. Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo said that once the MRF is completed, all the waste pickers from the present Candau-ay dumpsite will be relocated there upon the closure of the decades-old open pit.
