Our sanitary landfill holds a Category 4 ranking from the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR).
Wacuman is recognized as one of the most advanced waste disposal and management facilities in the Philippines. True to its design as a world-class facility, it operates at par with the most developed sanitary landfills in Southeast Asia, as well as other parts of the world. It follows the guidelines and provisions of Philippine Republic Acts 9003 and 6969. The landfill’s design and construction team is composed of geological and ecological experts from the University of the Philippines, Los Baños, Laguna.
Inverted Pyramid Design
The landfill cell was constructed as an inverted pyramid, starting with a 14,000 square meter base. This inverted pyramid design, coupled with systematic layering, allows for greater holding capacity and a longer lifespan. To protect the land, the cell uses a multi-lining system that overlays a layer of gravel, sand, and clay, topped by a specialized liner. The cell has pre-installed gas vents to facilitate the safe release of accumulated gasses, and a pre-installed pipe system underneath the active cell to convey the leachate or waste fluid to the waste water treatment facility.
Waste Water Management Facility
MBBR Waste Water Treatment Facility: first in the country
The first of its kind in the country, Wacuman Incorporated uses a Moving Bed Bio-film Reactor (MBBR) Waste Water Treatment facility to recycle waste water into reusable water.
Waste water from the sanitary landfill cells are conveyed to the MBBR for treatment. It then undergoes a six-step method to treat the waste water and process it into clear recycled water that can be used for irrigation and industrial purposes.
MBBR technology utilizes polyethylene biofilm carriers that move freely through the aerated wastewater treatment basin. The non-toxic biodegradable biocarriers provide a highly effective environment for biofilm growth, that in turn, disinfects, deodorizes, decomposes, and disperses oil and grease in the wastewater. The process is safe and does not harm the ecological system and marine life. The process is flexible and cost-effective, easily adjusting to meet expanding waste water loads or more stringent discharge requirements.
Aside from the active cell and MBBR waste water facility, our landfill has a secure entrance gate, an administration office, a weigh bridge and documentation area, service roads and ample parking, a truck wash bay and fumigation area, a material recovery facility, a motorpool, and a waiting area for drivers.
Our facilities are well-maintained to ensure ease in operations. Selected stops have built-in checks to ensure that everything is properly weighed, classified, and possesses proper documentation.
