from Libertad Market declogging
CDRRMO: Most of the waste recovered were plastics
The Bacolod City Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office (CDRRMO) flood control team collected at least 23 sacks of mixed garbage after a two-day declogging operation at the city’s Libertad Public Market. According to CDRRMO, they acted upon the request of concerned citizens.
A total of eight manholes and drainage systems were checked.
It was noted by CDRRMO that most of the waste was plastic.
The local government office again reminded the public to support the city’s flood control and mitigation program by seriously practicing proper solid waste segregation and disposal as mandated by RA 9003, or the Solid Waste Management Act of 2001.
CDRRMO added, they will continue conducting de-clogging operations around the city in order to reduce occurrences of flooding./DGB, WDJ
