Angeles City Mayor Carmelo “Pogi” Lazatin Jr. on June 9, 2022 ordered the complete shutdown of the temporary Material Recovery Facility (MRF) in Barangay Mining beginning June 15, 2022.
Lazatin said this during his meeting with Chief Adviser and Tactician IC Calaguas, City Engineer and concurrent Environmental Management System Head Donato Dizon and Pipo Soliman of MRF.
Mayor Lazatin said that the city will no longer use an MRF. Instead, all of the waste that will be collected will go straight to the sanitary landfill in Porac town.
Lazatin continues to encourage Angeleños to practice proper waste segregation.
