The Council will study the possibility of privatizing the collection and disposal of garbage.

Councilor Rogelio Valesco over the weekend said privatizing the garbage collection would relieve the city government of its gargantuan tasks in the maintenance of sanitation and cleanliness.

At present, the city government maintains 25 units of garbage trucks that collect garbage within the city proper and downtown barangays.

Valesco said perhaps the private sector could effectively handle the collection and disposal of garbage like in some parts of the country.

Valesco said they would have to visit some local government units that have privatized the garbage collection to study the mechanics.
