LEGAZPI CITY — The city government of Legazpi will soon receive a P12M grant from the World Bank to finance the closure and rehabilitation of an old dump site and the operation of an adjacent landfill in Banquerohan, here.

Mayor Noel Rosal said on Monday a WB supervision team and the Land Bank of the Philippines environmental program and management team recently visited his office.

Out of the six local government unit beneficiaries of the Integrated Persistent Organic Pollutant (IPOPs) projects, Rosal said,

The WB has chosen the city as a model LGU in implementing the solid waste management program of the government, out of the six local government unit beneficiaries of the Integrated Persistent Organic Pollutant projects, Rosal said,

The recognition was based on the proper segregation of solid waste materials and effective campaign in preventing open burning of garbage.

Meanwhile, the LBP shows interest at examining and evaluation of the garbage deposit in the old dump, looking to capture the methane gas for conversion into power as part of the carbon finance support facility. The facility is a Land Bank program for the promotion of climate change mitigation projects.
