Location also a challenge for CamNorte landfill–Bokal Quinones


Bokal Gerry Quinones of the Provincial Government of Camarines Norte has highlighted another problem regarding the proposed sanitary landfill in the garbage-plagued province–it’s location.

Quinones, in a Brigada News FM Daet report Saturday (May 13), said local officials are still studying possible areas that can host the sanitary landfill.

Current plans to set up the landfill at one village in the town of Basud, Camarines Norte was described as “difficult” by the politiko.

Quinones also said the location is not favorable to other local government units (LGUs) that want to dispose of their trash there, noting it’s too far.

It was earlier reported that opening a sanitary landfill–envisioned as the best solution to the province’s garbage woes–would cost a whopping P100 million.

A dozen LGUs is expected to benefit from such landfill.

A Camarines Norte News report earlier said that Daet alone, the provincial capital, produces at least 30 tons of garbage daily.
