THE IPM-Construction and Development Corp. (IPM-CDC) will implement the one-time garbage collection at night in the main and secondary roads in Bacolod City starting next week.
Horace Yap, consultant of IPM-CDC, said Tuesday, August 3, that they are now conducting a one week dry-run for the one-time garbage collection at night in the main and secondary roads in the city, and they will implement it starting next week.
He said there will be no collection of garbage along the main and second roads in daytime from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m.
"The garbage should be disposed in the designated areas only from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., the garbage disposal time," he added.
Yap said the IPM-CDC trucks will pick up the garbage only from 9:30 p.m. onwards for the main and secondary roads.
Yap noted that the schedule for subdivisions, markets and interior barangays will remain the same.
Yap said they provided additional trips for the collection of garbage during nighttime in the main and secondary roads.
"We already sent flyers to the affected barangays so they can also inform their constituents of the new schedule of garbage collection in the main and secondary roads," he said.
He added this will be advantageous to the city to reduce traffic congestion and eyesores on streets.
Neil Marcelino, project supervisor of IPM-CDC, earlier said they acquired additional dump trucks and other equipment from Manila and has a total of 220 garbage collectors to improve their services in the city.
He said they now have a total of 71 units of dump trucks and compactors to collect all the garbage in the 61 barangays.
He added that in previous years, they encountered some problems in their operations that affected the garbage collection in some areas in Bacolod.
