Sanitary Landfill Project in Bohol sees light

The Bohol Chronicle

Having adopted a strong opposing stance against the cluster sanitary landfill project may have earned him the mayoralty of Albur town but Mayor Jose Ugdoracion made a twist on his stand as he vowed to adopt an “open-minded” policy regarding the project.

Extensive talks with the sanitary landfill proponents in the past weeks allowed Ugdoracion to recognize the need for an environmentally safe garbage disposal system.

In an interview with the Chronicle, Ugdoracion said he will give proponents of the project a chance to educate the people of Albur regarding sanitary landfills and the latest technology it employs to ensure that the town’s groundwater resources will not be contaminated.

Representatives of the Philippine Tourism Authority (PTA) and Philippine Environmental Governance (Eco-Gov) explained to Ugdoracion that the sanitary landfill will never pollute the area or spoil Albur’s several residential sites being eyed by housing and village developers.

While he enjoys the backing of Vice Mayor Cirilo Jalad and the majority of the municipal councilors, Ugdoracion said the people of Albur will ultimately decide whether they are amenable to host the cluster sanitary landfill.

The mayor said he will allow the proponents to convince the people of Albur to agree with the project.
However, the outcome of the process will greatly depend on the public’s acceptance, Ugdoracion stressed.

According to Ugdoracion, he was assured by landfill proponents that a waste segregation and treatment facility will prevent seepage of leachate generated by the garbage disposed.
This is a major concern of groups opposed to the project since the sanitary landfill site is reportedly situated in an aquifer that supplies water to four barangays.

Moreover, if Albur residents agree to host garbage from other municipalities, Ugdoracion said only residual wastes will be allowed to the cluster sanitary landfill.
