dumpsite final notice
BY CHRYSEEE SAMILLANO
The National Solid Waste Management Commission sent a final notice to the Bacolod City government reminding it of its commitment to comply with the conditions on the Authority to Close pertaining to the dumpsite in Brgy. Felisa, Bacolod City.
NSWMC executive director Gerardo Calderon in his letter dated Jan. 19, 2009 to Bacolod Mayor Evelio Leonardia, said that, reports dated Dec. 8, 2008 of the Environmental Management Bureau VI, showed that the city is still in the process of rehabilitating the Felisa dumpsite.
However, he said, that the city government is very slow in providing measures to address the problem in the disposal facility, particularly the odor, and leachate flowing in the water body, among others.
