BALBALAN, Kalinga -- This fast developing municipality has opened a public landfill facility as part of its waste management program.

Mayor Kenneth Dale Mangaoang said it is imperative to develop the facility as early as now before it will be too late to identify where to dump the town’s wastes.

The Municipal Government had obtained a two-hectare landfill in Barangay Balantoy, several kilometers from residential areas.


Mangaoang said the Municipal Government is now constructing a road leading to the naturally formed bowl, very ideal for the purpose.

The facility is seen for long use where garbage from the entire municipality could be deposited, Mangaoang said.

Meanwhile, residents of Balbalan have been taught on backyard compost system as a way to eliminate biodegradable waste products. They have also been encouraged to practice waste segregation. (Larry Lopez)
