‘Green group’ backs opposition to disposal of waste from Canada


In a statement, EcoWaste Coalition lauded the citizens’ groups led by the Coalition of Concerned Citizens of Bamban, as well as the provincial government of Tarlac, for questioning the disposal of waste from in a landfill facility in the town of Capas. “Canada cannot simply bury the evidence of this case of gross environmental injus-tice in our soil and get away with it,” said Rene Pineda, vice-president of the EcoWaste Coalition, an environmen-tal network of public interest groups. Tarlac Gov. Victor Yap suspended on Monday the dumping of the garbage from Canada until a certification on waste analysis was submitted by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources.
