BACOLOD City – The flood control team of the Bacolod City Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office (CDRRMO) collected 23 sacks of mixed garbage during the 2-day declogging operations at the Libertad Public Market here.

According to the CDRRMO, they acted on the request of concerned citizens and they immediately visited the area to remove the waste that clogged up the drainage system.

Eight manholes and drainage systems were checked by the CDRRMO which churned out 23 sacks of garbage.

The CDRRMO observed that most of the waste they removed were plastics.

The local government office has again reminded the public to support the city’s flood control and mitigation program by seriously practicing proper solid waste segregation and disposal as mandated by RA 9003 otherwise known as the Solid Waste Management Act of 2001.

The office added that it will continue conducting de-clogging operations around the city to curb flooding.
