Dumping garbage at Laguna Lake
MetadataShow full item record
According to the LLDA, IPM Construction and Development Corp. and Level Up Construction and Development Corp. have illegally reclaimed 47 hectares of the lake. The LLDA has ordered the closure of the sites, and have filed criminal and administrative charges against the two companies. These companies assert that the area is just a parking lot for their dump trucks. But the LLDA claims that it has strong evidence — among them aerial photos and satellite images — to prove that these companies have been dumping garbage on an illegally reclaimed part of the lake in Barangay Calzada, Taguig, since 2012. The news reports added that these two companies are garbage contractors for Manila, Quezon City, Pasay, and Taguig.
