Barangay Felisa dumpsite hosts Bacolod City’s garbage since 2005 and as an open dumpsite, it has been filled over the limit. The management of the open dump system could have been regulated if only the City was able to implement garbage segregation from the source. The condition of the dumpsite has worsened along with the fact that the volume of garbage in the City significantly rose from an approximated 120 tons to a whopping 360 tons as of today.
A week ago the open dumpsite caught fire and is still burning as of press time. Hundreds of waste pickers, scavengers living in Barangay Felisa continue to salvage what they can from the burning dumpsite. The City has now decided to use the sanitary landfill due to the condition of the said dumpsite. A road was developed by the City for the easy access of the garbage trucks that ferry the garbage to the facility.
A futile exercise. Sadly, waste segregation in Bacolod City is still an exercise in futility because garbage ends up this way at the Felisa Sanitary Landfill area.* (Owen S. Bayog/NDB photo)
