‘Proper waste disposal abate city flooding

first_img It was noted by CDRRMO that most of the waste was plastic. The local government office again reminded the public to support the city’s flood control and mitigation program by seriously practicing proper solid waste segregation and disposal as mandated by RA 9003, or the Solid Waste Management Act of 2001. BACOLOD City – The local disaster office in this city urged the public to practice proper waste disposal to prevent trash from clogging the city’s drainage system and minimize flood risks. A total of eight manholes and drainage systems were checked. According to CDRRMO, they acted upon the request of concerned citizens. The Bacolod City Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office (CDRRMO) made this call after its flood control team collected at least 23 sacks of mixed garbage during a two-day declogging operation at the city’s Libertad Public Market. CDRRMO said it will continue conducting de-clogging operations around the city in order to reduce occurrences of flooding./PNlast_img
