City’s continuous support to W2W project assured

THE operation of the waste conversion management facility in Dagupan City will start this year.

This was assured by the Sangguniang Panlungsod (SP) when it passed a resolution declaring the city’s continuous support to the waste conversion management facility project pursuant to the Joint Venture Agreement (JVA) between the city government of Dagupan and the Sure Global Waste2Worth PTE. Ltd, an American company.

The resolution was passed during the SP session on June 10 following the assurance of Jill C. Boughton, chief executive officer of Sure Global on June 3 that the Waste Management Facility will start its operation this year.

The SP said the operation of the waste management facility is imperative in order to address the perennial problem of waste disposal in the city.

The facility will be put up in Barangay Bonuan Binloc where a 19,261 square meters of land was segregated and reserved for the project in a Proclamation No. 1302 dated June 3, 2016 signed by then President Benigno Aquino III.

The SP said a partnership between the city government and the private sector was pursued in order to establish and operate an effective and efficient waste management facility.

The facility seeks to convert plastic wastes into diesel fuel that can be used by motor vehicles and solid wastes into fertilizers and methane gas for cooking as well as in lighting homes.   

The SP earlier passed Ordinance No. 2062-2016 that authorized Mayor Belen Fernandez to enter into a Joint Venture Agreement with Sure Global represented by Boughton.

The Joint Venture Agreement was signed on August 10, 2017 and was ratified by Resolution No. 7332-2017 passed by the SP.
