Amid a worsening garbage crisis in the country, the Metro Clark Waste Management is geared to face the challenge to help the government address the problem.

At a media briefing, Victoria Gaetos, executive vice president, said “we will not reject it” should the National Capital Region and the other regions ask their help.

“Our 20-hectare [engineered] landfill can accommodate 4,000 metric tons of trash a day. Right now, we are only getting just 2,800 metric tons a day,” she said.

“We can cater to Metro Manila. We have the technology. We know how to expand and how to put it. We are Department of Environment and Natural Resources-compliant. We are also Department of Labor and Employment-compliant. We pay taxes correctly. Aside from these, we have three ISO certifications,” she added.

She said they are confident of handling all kinds of wastes.

She stressed that “when wastes are delivered here, we assure you that they are very safe here.”

MCWM is a 100-hectare facility in Capas, Tarlac with 70 hectares allocated as landfill and 30 percent for buffer zone, material recovery facility, orchard and office spaces.

Gaetos assured the public and the people of Capas that they were driven by commitment and guided by principles in pursuit of excellence using a German technology.

“Our surge now is Zambales. Since the second quarter of 2019, we have been servicing the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority, aside from Clark,” she said.

“We are the main waste management provider in Northern Luzon, including Central Luzon serving about 100 cities and municipalities, and a hundred of private companies, including 120 industrial clients and 1,000 locators in the Clark and Subic Freeport zones,” she added.
