Vico Sotto to junk corruption in garbage collection with new scheme

0 61

“May pera sa basura” is no longer true for politikos in power in Pasig City.

Mayor Vico Sotto’s reform project is operating so far, so good. It involves a city-operated waste collection system now on trial in one barangay.

“First 3 days of our pilot GARBAGE COLLECTION BY ADMIN in Brgy Pinagbuhatan. Maganda po ang feedback at kahit 3 araw pa lang ay marami na tayong napapasukan na hindi napapasukan ng contractor dati,” the politiko said.

Among other perks such as no need for bidding and direct control over truck routes, Sotto counts another bonus.

“The LGU will spend less and it will be more difficult for future mayors to make corrupt deals.
Meron tayong 8 garbage trucks at 30+ field staff na umiikot sa Pinagbuhatan,” he added.

“Pagkatapos ng 3 buwan ia-assess natin kung puwede na ring “by admin” sa iba pang barangay.”

What a cleanup job!
