GSO, garbage hauler asked to use anti-odor agents
by PIO release

The city council reminded the City Solid Waste Management Board through the General Services Office (GSO) and the City Solid Waste Division and the garbage hauler to ensure that waste materials are treated with anti-odor agents before the same are transported or hauled out of the city.

In a resolution, the council also asked the GSO to use anti-odor agents and disinfectants on the city’s garbage trucks to the hauler’s transfer station in Lamtang, Puguis, La Trinidad, Benguet to lessen the foul odor emanating from the wastes.

The resolution authored by Councilor Elaine D. Sembrano stated that the city’s garbage hauler or contractor and those in charge of the hauling of the generated waste from the city’s barangays must be mindful that the spread of disease-causing microorganisms can be through the air so it is necessary to ensure that garbage in transit is treated with anti-odor agents to avoid being a nuisance.

Baguio is hauling its garbage to a sanitary landfill in Capas, Tarlac while its garbage trucks haul the city’s generated waste from the barangays to the transfer station of the hauler in Lamtang, Puguis, La Trinidad.

Residents in the barangays and along the transfer route of the garbage trucks from the designated pick up stations and the transfer station have repeatedly complained about the obnoxious odor that lingers even when the trucks carrying the said garbage are gone.

The resolution said that the city is being put in a bad state once the trucks of its hauler and its garbage trucks pass by populated areas and emit foul odor from the garbage loaded on the said trucks.

Representatives of MA Camilo Trucking and Freight Services informed local legislators that before the city’s residual waste are loaded and transported, the garbage is treated with lime and other anti-odor chemicals and disinfectants.

The resolution also reminded the garbage hauler to make sure that the trucks used for hauling the city’s residual waste is properly covered and that the garbage is treated with anti-odor agents to prevent repeated complaints from residents along the route regarding foul odor from the garbage.

The city is hauling out some 160 to 170 tons of residual waste from the hauler’s transfer station to the sanitary landfill.

The city’s garbage trucks is collecting some 402 tons of garbage from the city’s 128 barangays daily with most of the bioldegradable waste converted to compost fertilizer by the Environmental Recycling System machines while the recyclable waste is taken by the volunteers.
