What a big, big lie telling the people of Bacolod to "segregate" waste, inaugurate a sanitary landfill in cahoots with certain Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) specialists to accept segregated waste while three mountains of dumped garbage towers and occupy the panoramic beauty of a Barangay Felisa farm land!
The three mountains of garbage in Barangay Felisa nearest to the Bacolod-Murcia-Bago border. These dumped garbage were accumulated almost a decade remained untouched by the City Government of Bacolod while a "new" barren sanitary landfill estimated to be P54M was constructed and inaugurated.* (H.

It has to be cleared that in Barangay Felisa nearest to the Bacolod-Murcia-Bago City border, three mountains of dumped garbage already existed at the onset of the Mayor Evelio Leonardia administration and continued to mount despite reports of P15 million dumpsite closure budget appropriations by then Councilor Greg Gasataya. Where is this amount now?
"Bacolod City is one of the top five percent (5%) Local Government Unit (LGU) which is implementing the Ecological Solid Waste Management Act of 2000 (R.A. 9003) by constructing a Sanitary Landfill," declared Undersecretary Demetrio Ignacio of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) and specifically saying that the City "complies with the requirement of sanitary landfill."
The horizontal sight of what seems to be an "Olympic size" depression covered by black polyethylene film obviously for garbage collection and another depression that looks like a "family size" swimming pool clearly shown in photo. The "pool" of stagnant water should be the waste water and lecheate treatment facilities. It is all empty and non-functional.* (H. James G. Toga/NDB)
Bacolod City Mayor Evelio Leonardia himself was happiest during the blessing of said Sanitary Landfill, reported two months ago, repeating what the undersecretary said, "We deserve this, being among the first 5 percent to comply with the sanitary landfill requirement in the whole country, out of about 1,500 local governments units."
Based on the assessment conducted on April 27, 2012 by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), Bacolod City was chosen as one of the Magic 4 beneficiaries of World Bank and DENR. World Bank’s Project Manager of Integrated Persistent Organic Pollutants of WB said Bacolod City will be given financial and technical assistance (IPOPS), intended for the closure and rehabilitation of its previous dumpsite.
Actually, there are 4 areas chosen as its beneficiary.

A part of the Felisa dumpsite-landfill in Bacolod.
