Dumaguete acts on scattered
trash complaints in Candauay

Dumaguete Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo yesterday said the city government will rent an additional bulldozer for the dumpsite in Barangay Candauay to clear trash spilling over to the road, following complaints from road users and residents.

He made the announcement after some photos were posted recently on Facebook showing heaps of garbage in the middle of the road at the Candauay dumpsite.

He disclosed that the local government will procure its own bulldozer in the coming months to keep up with the demand at the open dumpsite, while efforts are now underway to find a sanitary landfill as required by law.
