The City Government of Naga, thru the City Solid Waste Management Office (SWMO), has purchased new dump trucks, in addition to the city’s existing units, to further improve the city’s waste collection and disposal.

Four new dump trucks, with 10- 16 cubic meter capacity each; one (1) mini- dump truck with 4-5 cubic meter capacity, designed for narrower road ways; and two (2) service vehicles were given the ceremonial blessing last Monday, November 6, 2017, at the city hall grounds here.

Engr. Joel Martin of the Solid Waste Management Office said the dump trucks, that cost the total amount of P2.9M are being readied in time for the opening of the new city landfill.

The SWMO is still looking forward to additional four (4) units of landfill- ready dump trucks to be purchased next year.

Para po bago magpoon ang landfill, ready na kita,” explained Engr. Martin.

The new dump trucks will be utilized for faster and more efficient city garbage collection.
