The City Market Division of the City Treasury Office conducted an intensive clean-up of the parking lot at Burnham Park which houses the food section of the night market.
Mayor Benjamin Magalong directed Market Superintendent Ceasar Emilio to conduct general cleaning on the area following complaints of foul odor emanating from some sections.
Emilio said they immediately conducted disinfection and flushing to thoroughly sanitize the place. 
Disinfection was also conducted by the Sanitation Division team of the City Health Services Office.
He also engaged the food vendor leader to strictly implement waste disposal protocols to ensure proper management of both the solid and liquid waste being generated every night.
Food vendor leader Sisinando Monderin was tasked to call a meeting with all the vendors to cascade the proper ways of disposing their wastes.
“They were instructed to segregate their wet and dry wastes.  The wet ones should be properly wrapped to avoid leakage and left at the parking for immediate pick up by the City Environment Parks and Management Office, before 5 a.m.,” he said.
The hauling of solid wastes was also adjusted to an earlier time to allow more time for cleaning. – Aileen P. Refuerzo
