GARBAGE hauler IPM-Construction and Development Corporation (IPM-CDC) hired at least 20 street cleaners for Bacolod City to help their garbage collectors, especially in the downtown area.
Vice Mayor El Cid Familiaran said the street cleaners were hired last year to assist the trash collectors during night time.
“The IPM-CDC is paying their own hired street cleaners to ensure the cleanliness at the downtown area and they are separate from the City Government hired street cleaners,” he said.
Familiaran noted that the city’s street cleaners are required to render an eight-hour duty while the IPM-CDC street cleaners are deployed only during night time.
In December 2017, the City Council approved the three-month extension of contract of services of IPM-CDC for collection, hauling and disposal of garbage and solid waste management.
The one year and four-month contract of IPM-CDC, which ended December 31, 2017, was extended from January to March 2018 for the garbage hauling and collection services at P14.858 million per month.
