MAYOR Mauricio Domogan expressed his appreciation to the support of Itogon Mayor Oscar Camantiles for the development of a solid waste site.

Camantiles recently signed a manifestation of support for the development of a multipurpose disposal site in Ampucao village in Itogon.

The disposal site will be used by Baguio La Trinidad Itogon Sablan Tuba and Tublay local governments.

Proponents could now work on the requirements needed for the Environmental Compliance Certificate (ECC), Domogan said.

He hopes the Department of Environment and Natural Resource-Protected Areas and Management Board will issue the necessary permits to enable proponents to move forward in securing an ECC.

The estimated $42 million project will be funded by a South Korean investor, Dohwa Engineering Ltd.

Aside from the city’s Environmental Recycling System, the site in Ampucao is being eyed as the final destination of the residual wastes.

The mayor said hauling residuals in Ampucao village is nearer compared to the private landfill in Capas, Tarlac.

The City Government, he said, may save on fuel with the Ampucao disposal site but he stressed corresponding tipping fees will still be paid to whoever will manage the landfill.

Vice Mayor Daniel Fariñas said aside from pinning hopes on the creation of the Itogon disposal site, he advised the City Government to continue looking for alternative sanitary landfills by acquiring lots.
