The Department of Public Services has been receiving numerous complaints of uncollected garbage after Dynamic Builders & Construction Co. (Phil.) Inc. reportedly reduced its number of trips from more than 130 to only 65 trips a day.
DPS head Nelson Sedillo yesterday said they will require the contractor to continue the collection of garbage since its contract with the city will still end on September 2. According to Dynamic Builders, the payment of the city has been delayed.
He said he already reported the matter to Bacolod Mayor Evelio Leonardia since the city has no personnel and equipment or trucks to pick up the garbage.
Sedillo said he is preparing to send all the complaints they have received to Dynamic Builders.
Leonardia said the failure of the contractor to collect garbage is unacceptable.
He said he has observed some differences lately in the performance of the Dynamic Builders.
“I relayed the message to Dynamic Builders that their contract is not yet finished. They should honor it as professionals according to the terms and conditions in the contract,” Leonardia said.
So he appealed to them to finish their obligation to the city, he said adding that “A contract is a contract, regardless of who signed it.”
Leonardia said he has instructed Sedillo to talk to the management of Dynamic Builders regarding the problem.
For good will and for good public relations, and if they plan to have business with the city in the future, they should come up with a good record, Leonardia said.*CGS
