Home to CEMSI’s first treatment plant, Silang recently signed a contract for the collection, treatment and disposal of its hazardous medical wastes. These will come from the local COVID19 Isolation Facility and various Rural Health Units in municipality. Together with Hon. Mayor Corie Poblete, Municipal Administrator Miguel Fule and RHU Head Dr. Joyce Guarin, we are hand-in-hand in ensuring the public of a safe transportation and treatment of its infectious wastes. CEMSI has been in Silang for the past 16 years and we continue to be an active community partner in its various noble missions.
