Bataan gov, Hermosa mayor lead opening of sanitary landfill
The local government of Bataan has strengthened its solid waste management mechanism by opening a new sanitary landfill facility.
Bataan Governor Abet Garcia and Hermosa Mayor Jopet Inton led the inauguration of the Hermosa Sanitary Landfill Facility, the first in the province, on Saturday, October 28.
“Very timely ang opening nito because the economy here is on the rise,” Governor Garcia said.
The landfill, which is now operational, was constructed under a public-private partnership. It is now being managed by Econest Waste Management Corporation, in partnership with the local government.
While Mayor Inton invites other Bataan local government units to use the new facility because of its cheaper rates, he said only properly segregated wastes will be admitted for disposal in the Hermosa landfill.
