The establishment of Cagayan de Oro City’s new landfill site at Sitio Pamalihi in Barangay Pagatpat is now in full swing, paving the way for the transfer of the present landfill located at Upper Dagong in Barangay Carmen.

City officials are expected to hold a meeting at the site on Monday to formally inaugurate the facility which will have  plastic lining beneath the dump site to prevent contamination of local aquifers brought about by seepage of leachate.
