The MRF will process wastes generated in barangays in the Pacdal area.

The Cepmo is also preparing a memorandum of agreement with the Baguio General Hospital and Medical Center for the construction of an MRF within the hospital's reservation.

The Bureau of Plant Industry (BPI) in Guisad also agreed to allot a portion of its property. The property will be evaluated before the construction will start.

Camp John Hay also agreed to allot a portion of area for storage and sorting alone. The Cempo will have a second visit of the site, this week.

The management of Teacher's Camp also agreed to establish its own waste management facility.

Lacsamana said Assistant Secretary Jonathan Malaya committed that garbage produced during functions will be managed by Teachers Camp personnel.

The memorandum of agreement with the Philippine Military Academy for the construction of a satellite MRF is also being crafted.

The City Engineers Office estimates site development would cost an initial P7 million.

The Cepmo is continuing its public consultation for the establishment of a sanitary landfill in Sto. Tomas and Sablan, Benguet.

Meanwhile, Lacsamana urged barangay cluster heads and barangay captains to visit the Cepmo office for the discussion of their MRFs. (Rimaliza Opiña)
