Garbage collection contractor irks Mayor

Bacolod Mayor Evelio Leonardia lashed out at hauler IPM-Construction and Development Corp. (IPM-CDC) for its below par performance following complaints from city residents on uncollected garbage that piled up since the holidays, including those brought about by super Typhoon Odette.

An apparently irked mayor, said that he “castigated” IPM-CDC after his office received numerous reports regarding the collector not gathering garbage and rubbish from major city streets, subdivisions and barangays.

“It was unacceptable. Even I was surprised about what happened,” Leonardia said, adding that while IPM-CDC management explained that some of their employees went on a break for the holidays, they still have a responsibility as the city’s official garbage collector.

“I told them ‘This cannot continue.’ They are under contract with the city and as such, they must do what is expected of them,” he said.

Let’s be fair with everybody. We know that all of us want to make a living, but let us respect the fact that we also need to do our jobs, especially those who are under government service,” the mayor said.

Leonardia also encouraged residents to report any further problems the IPM-CDC might have overlooked, considering that they are now working double time to rid the city of unwanted trash.

“I personally call them if I see something that needs their attention. The Mayor’s Office is always open for the people of Bacolod. If you see any lapses, call us so that we can address the problem at the soonest time possible,” Leonardia said.*
