The construction of a treatment
plant for solid waste started late 2000 and will most likely
be finished by the end of June 2002. The plant is situated
in the mountainside east of Almolonga, overlooking the village.
The plant has 6 principal areas: Unloading area
with primary separation, classification area for detailed
separation, storage area for classified materials, landfill,
compost area and an administration building. All the sections
are situated at different levels.
The plant needs a considerable
machinery park to function according to the plans. If finances
turn out according to the plan, the plant may be fully functional
by the end of 2002. Pictures below are from April 2002.
