Regional Director Ma. Victoria V. Abrera , Engr. Ricardo P. Dang-iw, Chief of the Solid Waste Management Section, Engr. Randy S. Langgawan, Provincial Environmental Management Unit Officer of Mt. Province together with Engr. Leo Soliba of the Municipal Engineering Office of Besao visited the newly-constructed Sanitary Landfill of LGU Besao, Mt. Province. The 400 sq.m cell is within the Solid Waste Management Facility in Barangay Kin-iway, Besao. Its construction started in CY 2019 and is planned to operate early CY 2023 or as soon as the baling machine procured is delivered. The LGU has spent almost 9M to complete the facility including fencing, construction of Residual Containment Area (RCA), centralized Material Recovery Facility (MRF), baling area, and a guardhouse.

This is in continuing compliance of the LGU in establishing a clean and safe disposal facility for the municipality. Strict implementation of segregation at source, operation of MRFs, backyard/ community composting, and the inclusion of baling of wastes before disposal will increase the life span of the sanitary landfill
