The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), led by Usec. Sylvia Ordoñez, President-designate for the Natural Resources Development Corporation, conducted an ocular inspection of the Quezon City Engineered Sanitary Landfill in Payatas, Quezon City on Friday, February 3, 2017.
Joining Usec. Ordoñez are DENR-NCR Regional Director Lourdes C. Wagan, EMB-NCR Regional Director Vizminda Osorio, and Dir. Elsie Encarnacion of the Solid Waste Management Office (SWMO) of the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA).
The team inspected the facility and initiated talks on its possible conversion as an ecotourism destination, following the directives of DENR Secretary Gina Lopez to seek for biodiversity-friendly enterprises that would benefit the people. Sec. Lopez earlier raised concern about the proximity of the landfill to the La Mesa reservoir and asked the city government to close and rehabilitate the area.
