THE difference between the Department of Travel and leisure and the Aklan local government above the location of a modern waste-treatment facility for Boracay Tropical isle has been settled, the Division of Environment and Natural Resources said Monday.
Zoilo Andin second, special action officer with the DENR pertaining to Boracay Tropical isle, said Gran Ciceron Cawaling of Malay agreed to you can put facility in the island not really in the mainland in Aklan.
â€œThey [the parties] have become OK, the disposal site will be create on the island. The garbage will no longer become barged and processed in the mainland other than special spend like batteries, bulbs and medical waste, â€ this individual told reporters in an interview.
Now that the dispute is now over, the DENR expects the P14-milion grinder-crusher technology becoming eyed by DOT to be put up in Boracay Island by September in time to get the start of the height season.
With all the establishment from the new technology, the expense of which will be shouldered by the travel department, Andin said a controlled-waste facility, an environmentally sound waste disposal site, to change the existing wide open dump has ceased to be needed.
â€œThis [grinder crusher] is a zero-waste technology, â€ he added. The grinder crusher will likely pave how for the closure in the open remove on Boracay Island which can be being used irrespective of it is already banned under the Ecological Sturdy Waste Administration Act of 2000.
The challenge of the environment department where you can get soil to cover the wide open dump as being a remedial measure, however , even now remains.
â€œWeâ€™re looking at getting soil from your mainland [Aklan] but it is definitely expensive. Weâ€™re appealing to occupants of Boracay if they could permit the local government to extract soil in their property to address the present open dump, â€ Andin said.
