BY CHRYSEE SAMILLANO
Vicente Petierre III, Bacolod Sangguniang Panlungsod secretary, said the Metrowaste Solidwaste Management Corp. may start its operation on March 16 after it is issued a notice to proceed by the Mayor.
Petierre, a member of the Bids and Awards Committee, said they will forward to Mayor Evelio Leonardia today the contract for the privatization and hauling services of garbage collection between the Metrowaste and the city government, that was ratified by the SP last week.
He said the Mayor will then issue a notice to proceed to Metrowaste, the contractor that won the bidding for the privatization of garbage collection in Bacolod, and it will have 10 days from receipt of the notice to implement the project.
