Mayor Ernesto Natividad says that he opposes the plan to make a
573-hectare property in Barangay Macabaklay a dumpsite for Manila’s garbage.
Macabaklay is in the southern part of the province near the Sierra Madre

Metro Manila generates 6,000 tons of garbage a day. The mayor added that
the people of Gapan are strongly opposed to the garbage dumping. Nueva
Ecija Governor Tommy Joson stated that the proposal would have to be
approved by Gapan's officials and residents.
