DAGUPAN CITY- ” We could not solve the more than 50 years problem on garbage in the city overnight.”6-4GARBAGE ISSUES. Dagupan City Mayor Belen Fernandez explains the garbage situation in the city during a news conference last February 23 held at the K17 Studio at the CSI The City Mall Complex.CESAR RAMIREZ

This was said by Mayor Belen Fernandez before a group of media practitioners last February 23 at the K17 Studio at the CSI Stadia.
“The close order for our dumpsite was done in 2006. We negotiated with the municipal government of San Jacinto for a possible site of sanitary land fill but was rejected by the townspeople there,” Mayor Fernandez said.
She said when she was the vice mayor in the city, she stopped the operation of dumpsites in Tambac and Bonuan Boquig Districts because of environmental concerns.
 ” It’s hard to solve the waste problems in the city. First, we do not have the technical capability. Second, we do not have available land to use and third, we don”t have the financial capability,’ she said.
 Fernandez also disclosed that the city government bought nine dump trucks to be used in their waste management activities on top of the three dump trucks that were maintained.
 ” We are negotiating with agencies to help us in the waste management problems in the city. There now proposals on how to help solve the problems and hopefully we could negotiate in the near future,” she said.
She said her administration is doing all its best to manage the waste in the city by educating the residents on waste segregation.

“The city residents as of now might not be that keen in observing the waste segregation scheme but there comes a time that they will be used to it,” she said.
