New dump trucks for proposed landfill and garbage collection
By Armie B. Gunay NGA CITY --- The City Government of Naga, thru the City Solid Waste Management Office (SWMO), has purchased new dump trucks, in addition to the city’s existing units to further improve the city’s waste collection and disposal. Four new dump trucks, with 10-16 cubic meter capacity each; one mini- dump truck with 4-5 cubic meter capacity, designed for narrower road ways; and two service vehicles were given the ceremonial blessing last Monday, November 6, 2017, at the city hall grounds here. Engr. Joel Martin of the Solid Waste Management Office said the dump trucks that cost the total amount of P2.9M, are being readied in time for the opening of the new city landfill. The SWMO is still looking forward to additional 4 units of landfill-ready dump trucks to be purchased next year. “Para po bago magpoon ang landfill, ready na kita,” explained Engr. Martin. The new dump trucks will also be utilized for faster and more efficient city garbage collection, he added.
