Parañaque City Mayor Eric Olivarez thanked the city’s 16 barangay chairpersons for their pivotal role in solving the garbage pileup caused by the transition from the old to the new garbage hauling contractor this year, according to a report by Manila Bulletin.

Olivarez on Tuesday, Jan 24, assured the city residents that the city government is on top of the situation and that he is focused on governance in collaboration with all stakeholders.

“We are thankful to all our barangay chairpersons for their full cooperation and support which enabled us to solve the problem in garbage collection,” Olivarez said.

The mayor said the city’s barangay officials issued certification that garbage collections in their jurisdiction have returned to normal.

Olivarez said that out of the 16 barangays, 10 have registered 100 percent collection efficiency while the others registered 70 to 90 percent.

He said villages that registered 70 to 90 percent efficiency are expected to improve in the coming days until everything has normalized.

“Of course, there are still some areas that we are working on, but these are mostly about collection schedules because our constituents have yet to adjust to the new time and date of garbage hauling,” Olivarez added.

The mayor added that the city’s award of contract to the new contractor is above board since the Bids and Awards Committee issued an invitation to bid last December, and only one garbage hauling company submitted a bid.

“We awarded the contract to the lone bidder because otherwise, we would have a bigger problem without a garbage hauling contractor,” Olivarez said.

Olivarez said the contract price was P400,000 higher than the previous contract because it reflects the current higher fuel prices, but still within the budget approved by the City Council.

“We also thank the City Council members for their support and cooperation in resolving the issue, and we are always ready to find ways to ensure that the delivery of essential services to our people remain unhampered,” he added.
