PIA Press Release

San Pablo City sanitary landfill and materials recovery facility, first in Luzon to comply with standard requirements

by Carlo P. Gonzaga

Calamba City (8 September) -- The San Pablo City Conventional Sanitary Landfill and the Material Recovery Facility (MRF) constructed in Sitio Baloc, Bo. Santo Nino is recognized as the first in Luzon to comply with the standard requirements as mandated by the Ecological Solid Waste Management Act of 2000.

This was the announcement recently by Emelita Causapin Aguinaldo, officer-in-charge of the National Solid Waste Management Commission (NSWMC).

The landfill and MRF also conformed with the standards set under Republic Act No. 6969, An Act To Control Toxic Substance and Hazardous and Nuclear Waste.

In addition, it also passed the standard requirements of the Laguna Lake Development Authority (LLDA); the following Presidential Decrees: Sec. 3 of PD No. 1121; Sec. 4 of PD No. 1151; Sec. 2 of PD 1585, and the Administrative Order No. 2003-30 of the Department of Natural Resources (DENR) which ensure protection of underground river within the jurisdiction of the city.

The city sanitary landfill has an in-vessel facility that processes the toxic fluid from garbage. After the neutralization process, the stink emanating from garbage is defused and also contributes to the increase in the production of organic fertilizer distributed to farmers in the city.

Since the construction of the sanitary landfill started until it was inaugurated, Aguinaldo visited the site often to guide the City Solid Waste Management Office (CSWMO) specifically on the component of production of organic fertilizer at the MRF.

It can be recalled that the technicians of the DENR in coordination with the NSWMC chooses the site for the landfill after further study and evaluation. (PIA Calabarzon) [top]
