REDUCE SCHOOL GARBAGE FEE

Cebu City Councilor Edgardo Labella is proposing to lower the annual garbage fee for academic institutions.

Labella observed that the P300,000 garbage fee imposed on private schools and universities and the P100,000 fee for commercial establishments was unfair since hotels, restaurants and amusement places generate more waste.

His proposal would reduce the fees for private schools to P200,000./Doris C. Bongcac
