The Tagum Sanitary Landfill is Tagum City’s primary waste disposal facility, located in Davao del Norte, Philippines. It can hold up to 300 tons of solid waste per day and is managed by the City Environment and Natural Resources Office (CENRO).
The landfill is designed to meet the sanitary landfill standards set by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), with a clay liner and leachate collection system in place to prevent environmental contamination.
To promote proper waste management, the Tagum City government has implemented various programs and initiatives to reduce waste and encourage recycling.
In September 2021, the groundbreaking ceremony and contract signing for the Tagum City Sanitary Landfill, located in Barangay Nueva Fuerza, were conducted. This is a significant project as it contributes to the Solid Waste Management System, resulting in better waste management practices.
The ceremony was attended by Former Mayor Allan Rellon, Former Vice Mayor Atty. Eva Loraine Estabillo, City Councilors, 1st District Congressman Representative Alvarez, Barangay LGU of Nueva Fuerza, DBP Representatives, Mark Roy Boado of RII Builders, and the City Department Heads – CENRO, CEO, CPDO, CARCHO, and other personnel from the City Government of Tagum.
