Engr. Albert G. Arcamo, EMB Caraga OIC Regional Director joined other EMB RDs during the virtual meeting with Secretary Roy A. Cimatu.

The strategies of EMB Regional Offices for Local Government Units (LGUs) in addressing the garbage problem after the closure of open dumpsites was highlighted in said virtual meeting.

It could be remembered that earlier this year, EMB Caraga has implemented and supervised the closure order of the three open dumpsites in different areas of the region.

RD Arcamo mentioned EMB Caraga’s commitment to strengthen the monitoring of LGUs compliance to other requirements of RA 9003. In fact, he cited that 100% of LGUs in Caraga have approved Solid Waste Management Plans. ###
