PRESERVE THE DIGNITY OF PRISONERS: CLOSE THE OPEN DUMPSITE!

This petition had 43 supporters


The establishment of open dump site in Sitio Candanque, Barangay Azagra, Tanjay City; and, adjacent or in close proximity of the District Jail - not only violates brazenly the declared State Policies, particularly, on Ensuring protection of the Public Health and Environment, but, by the most frustrating condition on the preservation of the dignity of prisoners as human beings.

It could create an unlikely impression that they are an inferior class in society, which is unfair, hence, the laments of families and relatives.

That based on the June 2016 ESWM Compliance Status Report of the then DENR-NIR, and until now, the City Government of Tanjay is noncompliant with the provisions of the Republic Act (R.A.) 9003, or the Ecological Solid Waste Management (ESWM) Plan, and the establishment of its appropriate disposal facility, mainly sanitary landfill.

That despite repeated reminders and warnings from the concerned authorities, urban Tanjay still failed to comply as there is no more valid reason for the locale to continue violating the law.

In fact, the Local Government Unit of Tanjay, received a Certificate of Non-Compliance, in said regard.

Therefore, to the Vice Mayor and the Members of the Sangguniang Panlungsod of Tanjay, We Petition You, to Totally Close the Open Dumpsite and Initiate Compliance of R.A. 9003, by pushing harder the CENRO, otherwise, we will elevate the issue to the Office of the Environmental Ombudsman which could result to utter embarrassment and unfriendliness.

ON PRESENTATION TO THE APPROPRIATE AGENCIES, THIS PETITION WILL BECOME A PUBLIC DOCUMENT.
