West Zone concessionaire Maynilad Water Services, Inc. (Maynilad) is offering septic tank cleaning services to its residential and semi-business customers this August in select parts of Manila, Muntinlupa, Pasay, Valenzuela, Quezon City, and in Cavite province at no extra cost.
Maynilad’s desludging services continue despite the recent re-implementation of modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ) in Metro Manila. Per Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) guidelines, water supply and sanitation services, including waste disposal services, are permitted to continue operations.
The company has adopted new and more stringent protocols in the conduct of desludging services to ensure the safety of its customers who will avail of the septic tank cleaning. Maynilad requires all of its desludging personnel and vacuum truck unit operators to wear personal protective equipment (PPE), practice physical distancing, and undertake extra disinfection procedures to protect against the spread of COVID-19.
“We have made our already-stringent desludging safety protocols even stricter, to assure our customers that we are taking all necessary steps to protect them from possible COVID-19 infection as we deliver our desludging services in their homes,” said Maynilad COO Randy T. Estrellado, adding that customers should avail of the service because it helps to protect community health and the environment.
