The garbage landslide started at around 4:30p.m. of August 27, on the day Typhoon Mina hit Northern Luzon. This picture was taken at the Irisan Dumpsite where Baguio City throws its garbage.
This situation is the fruit of decades of corruption in government. For many years, all attempts to solve the garbage problem of Baguio City has been hampered by the corrupt attitude of the local officials. Up to now, the situation is as serious as it was a decade ago.
