CEBU, Philippines — The Department of Public Services (DPS) is hanging tight for the mandate of Mayor Edgardo Labella whether to permit ARN Central Waste Management Inc. to pull city's produced junk for the long periods of July to December this year.
DPS acting head engineer Joel Biton said that the official office is currently checking on the pulling contract of ARN with the regional government.
To review, last May, ARN won the open offering for the trash pulling contract adding up to P65 million in the wake of offering a tipping charge of P647 per ton of waste.
"Nagpaabot ta og resulta sa meeting sa atong tag-as nato, nagsige karon (og meeting) kay naa'y crisis nga mahitabo kung asa ta molabay puhon, gitrabaho na karon kung duna inlet augmentation or crisis buy," Biton said.
In a different meeting, city lawyer Rey Gealon said they will look at the agreement of ARN, including their uncommon land use grant that was endorsed by the City Council last August 2018.
The City Council at the time was ruled by Bando Osmeña Pundok Kauswagan (BOPK) councilors and the organization councilors have been scrutinizing the utilization of ARN.
Furthermore, Partido Barug-PDP-Laban councilors scrutinized the legitimacy and legitimateness of its endorsement as the session was suspended after they left the session lobby.
Be that as it may, Gealon said they are verifying a duplicate of the agreement since it is mysteriously gone. Other related archives are currently likewise being audited.
"We are investigating it. That is the reason we are organizing with Office of the Mayor and the workplace of the head, as to those agreements. As referenced before, we have not verified every one of the records and papers, so we need to unite it, with the goal for us to concoct a savvy activity, we need to know the terms and states of those agreements," he said.
At present, Jomara Konstruckt Inc. is pulling the junk from the private exchange station to the private landfill.
The agreement of Jomara was stretched out on the grounds that it needs to pull the staying 3,000 tons of waste which is required to be practiced five days from now, as gave in the agreement.
"Na-broaden siya tungod kay per ton man na, so wala dad man niya nahurot ang pila ka tonnage, gamay nalang og sobra, hapit na nahuman," Biton said.
As far as anyone knows, the pulling contract of Jomara, which began in January with an agreement measure of P130.8 million, finished a month ago.
After the agreement of Jomara finished, Biton needed to hang tight for the choice of the official division for the trash transfer plan of the city.
He denied reports that there is continuous dumping in the questionable Inayawan landfill.
Biton said after it was closed down in December 2016, the regional government was banned from discarding garbage in the office. He said the trash transfer plan of the city right currently is contracting specialist co-ops to pull city's produced rubbish.
"Naa ma'y move station sa EVO, mao na ang gigamit sa city karon, unya ngadto mosulod sa door sa landfill kay ang pultahan tua man sa luyo, pero wala sila maglabay sa landfill. Magtimbang man pitiful ta, anha sulod sa landfill," Biton said.
The P2.5-million gauging size of the regional government was introduced inside the administration region of the Inayawan landfill.
Before city's waste vehicles will dump the gathered junk to the exchange station, each heap of refuse will be weighed for observing purposes.
Biton, who accepted office last June 30, said the trash gathering is reasonable. Consistently the city creates 450 to 550 tons of garbage
