WASTE MANAGEMENT

A.   Solid Waste Management

B.   Water Disposal

Apart from the emerging problem of the municipality with regards to solid waste management, wastewater management is also becoming one of the apparent concerns. Due to the lack of septic tanks in some houses and other wastewater treatment facilities, deterioration in the condition of the surface and groundwater reserves, which are the main sources of potable water in the municipality, are affected and at stake.

C.   Hospital Waste

Hospital waste generated by the Municipal Health Office and St. Theodore’s Hospital are currently being disposed through stockpiling in a storage tank found in their vicinities. However, there is still no concrete plan as to where these used needles, bandages and other hospital waste will be disposed once filled up.
