TABUK CITY, Kalinga – With the risks involved in the performance of essential waste management services, the City Environment and Natural Resources Office (CENRO) is seeking for the employment of non-regular workers such as the garbage collectors, street sweepers, sorters and cemetery caretakers for next year.
Senior Environmental Management Specialist George Andres Padalla said that job order, casual and contract of service workers assigned at the CENRO are needed in the implementation of the city’s solid waste management program.
He said that their prime duty are to implement the efficiency of collection, transport and disposal of garbage; operation of Materials Recovery Facility and composting facility; landfill operations and maintenance; parks, open spaces, nursery and cemeteries maintenance; and repair and maintenance of all government-owned solid waste collection vehicles and machineries.
Padalla also said that the CENRO recommends the existing non-regular workers to be retained from their duty in case there is a lay-off of employees next year to maintain the cleanliness of the city’s environment and to avoid accumulation of waste from the different sources.
He cited that with the number of job orders deployed in the CENRO, cleanliness and orderliness of the city parks and streets, residential and commercial areas within the city shall be maintained.
As per records of the CENRO, there are 49 street sweepers, nine sorters, 29 garbage collectors, three cemetery caretakers and one security guard employed as job order paid at P330.00 daily, while there are seven garbage collectors employed as casual receiving P400.00 daily. By Darwin S. Serion
