Two days after the Tagbilaran dumpsite was closed by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) on Wednesday, November 20, 2019, garbage started piling up on streets.

In downtown Tagbilaran, uncollected garbage bags were put up along the road in front of the Tagbilaran City Square.

Piles of garbage were also seen on CPG Avenue, B. Inting Street, C. Marapao Street corner J. Torralba Street, Jacinto Street, and Gallares Street.

The uncollected garbage issue reached areas in Graham Avenue.

Garbage stench in some roads was “terrible” and stray dogs were ripping open garbage bags, leaving their contents strewn across the street.

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) on Wednesday (Nov. 25) issued cease-and-desist orders against the Tagbilaran City government for operating an open dumpsite, strictly prohibited under Republic Act (RA) 9003 or the Ecological Solid Waste Management Act of 2000.
