- LEGAZPI CITY SANITARY LANDFILL FACILITY
- Sanitary landfill is an engineered disposal facility designed, constructed, and operated in a manner that minimizes impacts to public health and the environment. In contrast to open dumpsites and controlled dumps, sanitary landfills undergo through planning right from the selection of the site up to post-closure management. Thus, although it requires substantial financial resources, it is the most desirable and appropriate method of final waste disposal on land.
- The Legazpi City Sanitary Landfill is a category II disposal facility, located in Barangay Banquerohan, 22 km from the city proper.
- Prior to construction and during preliminary investigation of the area, the western part of the city owned 12 hectare lot was considered such that in the preparation of the Master Plan for a sanitary landfill, an 18 hectare area was considered. With that in mind, the city government proposed for expansion of the area of the final disposal facility, since the existing area upon evaluation before showed that almost 50% of the total area has already been utilized as dumping area of the city for 15 years. Hence, through a SP resolution No. 0126-¬2009, the final disposal facility was redefined to 21 hectares. At present the 21 hectares includes the Open Dumpsite that will be close by the city this year, the phase 1 Sanitary Landfill Facility and its support facilities and the proposed site for future cell. The construction of the Sanitary Landfill Facility started December 2009 and was turned over to the city last November 2010.

- Protect the environment
It is sad but true that as of the year 2012 the rivers of the Philippines continue to be the #1 Sewer Systems of the Philippines.
Protect & Save the Rivers. Do not let your sewer drain into the river. Your community can be the first to initiate this project.
Build your riverbank protection with a built-in gutter system. Reforest within Ten Years - Guaranteed!
Let us plant more trees in every barangay in the entire Philippines. It does not make any difference if the barangay is urban, partially urban or rural; we need more trees. Trees will prevent erosion, provide oxygen, prevent green house effect, and even a place of business for the shade tree mechanic.
The Philippines is a tropical country and practically anything will grow. The DENR has the planting trees project that goes on every year. Lots of picture taking for the media. Planting trees one by one is the "human" way of doing it. This individual planting of trees is good if done to "line" the roads and highways with trees or along fences or property divisions, or if you have a plantation.
To reforest the nation of the Philippines we have to plant trees the "mother nature" way. Sow the seeds during the rainy season. Go deep into "bald" forests and plant trees by sowing seeds. If there's not enough volunteers to do this, use the military helicopters to fly over the designated areas and sow the seeds.
Guaranteed within a few years, The Philippines will be lush again. >>Read More
We are using our rivers as our sewer system. If you ask a Filipino, "Are the Filipinos a clean people?" The answer is an automatic, "Yes!". However, the Filipinos are suffering from the same disease or attitude as most people do, and that is the "NIMBY" disease or "NIMBY" attitude. (NIMBY) Not In My Back Yard. So it is OK to dump my garbage and sewer there. Not mine! Someone else will take care of it.
This attitude is killing our rivers. Your great-grandparents, grandparents or parents were once proud to tell the stories of how they enjoyed swimming in the river behind your house or nearby. However, you can't say the same or tell the same stories to your kids or grand kids. Why? Because your generation is killing the river.

We have so much water in the Philippines and yet very little to drink.
Instead of relying too much on Diesel fuel and Coal to generate the majority of Philippine's Electrical energy Supply, we can concentrate more on renewable and sustainable source of energy such as: Hydro Power, Solar Power, and Wind Power. We have too many black outs.
