Cops handcuff Lopez kin,
end blockade at dumpsite

Tension rose yesterday between personnel of the Bacolod City government and the Lopez family for about five-and-a-half hours when more than 20 garbage-filled dump trucks of the Enviroking Corporation were prevented from entering the access road leading to the sanitary landfill and open dumpsite in Purok Acacia, Brgy. Felisa, Bacolod City for failure of the garbage hauler to pay toll fees.

Roy Lopez, spokesperson of the Lopez family, blocked the road with a tractor, a bamboo barrier and a pick-up truck, preventing the dump trucks from passing through the access road.

He was only following instructions from the board of directors of the Dynasty Agri-Aqua Ventures Corp. to stay in the area since the road is still part of their property, Lopez said. In order for the dump truck to pass through, they should pay toll fees, he added.moremoremore
