BACOLOD City Vice Mayor El Cid Familiaran urged the household owners to report to garbage hauler IPM-Construction and Development Corporation (CDC) any garbage collectors who solicit for the holiday season.
“It’s a no-no to the IPM-CDC that they are soliciting from household owners,” the vice mayor said.
Giving of Christmas gifts should be voluntarily and that they should not demand from the residents, he added.
Familiaran noted that he received reports that some garbage collectors of IPM-CDC were distributing envelope in various barangays.
“Our residents should report it to the IPM-CDC to address this problem,” Familiaran said.
He said the garbage collectors should not make a demand because it’s not allowed even in the government.
Daryl Abiol, project supervisor of IPM-CDC, earlier said they are not authorizing their garbage collectors to ask money from household owners.
He said they are constantly monitoring the performance of their garbage collectors and reminding them not to ask anything from the homeowners.
Abiol urged the household owners not to give anything to the garbage collectors.
“Just get the body number of the garbage truck and report it to us, including the date and time or call us at our hotline at 7075373. We are not tolerating them because this is one of our policies,” Abiol said. (MAP)
