The much hyped environmental recycling machines (ERS) failed to generate the annual income of P31 million from compost fertilizer, aside from not being fully maximized.
City Councilor Perlita Chan-Rondez reported that the two ERS earned an estimate of only close to P20M or a shortfall of at least P11M from the projected annual income.
Information has it that there is a problem in the dryness of the compost produced by the two ERS machines reason why not all fertilizers produced by the machines are being sold.
Based on the initial agreement between the city and Protech Machineries Corp., the supplier of the machines, the city will sell at P6 a kilo if the private firm opted to buy the compost product.
One of the major reasons there was a shortfall of the projected revenue was the low collection rate of biodegradable wastes apparently due to poor compliance by residents to the no segregation, no collection policy.
It was in the aftermath of the trash slide in August that there was a noted high compliance by residents of the policy resulting in high collection of biodegradable wastes.
The city government purchased the two ERS machines at P64 million each after Protech promised that each machine can process at least 48 tons of waste in 24 hours.
