Baguio ready to open hauling of garbage to bidding in 2018
by PIO release

The local government is inclined to bid out the hauling of the city’s residual waste.

Eugene D. Buyucan, officer-in-charge of the City General Services office, informed members of the city council that his office already prepared the purchase request for the hauling of the city’s residual waste to Capas, Tarlac and submitted the same to the Bids and Awards Committee (BAC) for the scheduling of the bidding.

Buyucan said interested bidders must be able to comply with the terms of reference for the hauling, foremost of which is the presence of staging areas or transfer stations that must have been issued permits by the Environment department and host local government units.

The local government is set to bid out the hauling of the city’s residual waste in the light of the compromise agreement entered into by MA Camilo Trucking and Freight Services and the petitioners who filed for the issuance of a temporary environment protection order against the use of the hauler’s transfer station in Lamtang, Puguis, La Trinidad, Benguet.

The operation of the staging area will be until Dec. 22.

The city is hauling 160 to 170 tons of residual waste to the Capas sanitary landfill in Tarlac.

Buyucan said he will follow up the schedule of bidding with the BAC as he welcomed the desired action of the city council in passing a resolution urging the BAC to immediately schedule the bidding for the hauling of the city’s residual waste next year.

The city bid out the hauling in 2015 which resulted in the disqualification of an interested bidder because his identified transfer station in Barangay Camp 7 was not issued an environmental compliance certificate. The contract was eventually  awarded to the present hauler.

For the upcoming bidding, Buyucan said that the hauler must be able to satisfy the terms of reference wherein the contractor must have a staging area that passed the standards of the host communities and the Environment department.

He admitted to the city council that the hauling of the city’s residual waste is only a temporary solution to the garbage disposal problem because the local government is currently setting its sights on the development of Benguet Corporation’s Antamok open pit site in Itogon, Benguet town to a waste-to-energy facility that could accommodate the city’s generated wastes.

Aside from the funding requirements, the project has not taken off because the city government has to obtain the consent of the municipal council of Itogon and obtain the consent of the community.
