This photo was taken in Candau-ay, Dumaguete City. The smoke brought by the dumpsite has been an issue for three weeks now. It started the last time it rained. We even sought help from the fire station five times to extinguish the fire. We’ve contacted Cenro, the local officials, the city administrator and even aired our sentiments over the radio but to no avail. They said they are trying to find ways to resolve the dumpsite issues in the area. I understand that it is impossible for the dumpsite to close the soonest.
Ang sa amin lang naman, ma extinguish muna ang usok na non-stop naming hinihinga for several days now! (Contributed by Melody C. Prado)
