The waste in the container will be collected by the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System (MWSS) for treatment prior to disposal. A total of 400 units of portable, container-based toilet will be procured and maintained under the Memorandum of Agreement signed by the DENR, the local government of Manila, Maynilad, and the Metroploitan Waterworks and Sewerage System.
