The City Government of Cagayan de Oro is considering the proposal of a Gemany-based expert on solid waste management.
The Herhof Gmbh-Zehira Philippines has impressed the City Council with their project proposal for a construction and establishment of Ultra Modern Waste Disposal Facilities for the city.
Michael Jimenez, president of Herhof Gmbh-Zehira Philippines, said the city is among the strategic locations identified as possible site for an Integrated Waste Management Facility.
Jimenez said, during the City Council regular session, that the operation will require a 15-hectare land for their site. Other than that, the city will not spend a single penny on the entire operation.
Councilor President Elipe, committee chair on environment and natural resources, said the firm’s proposal fits with the city’s environment code, which focuses on the protection and maintenance of ecological balance.
