In preparation for this program, CATA Officers headed by its President Eugenio Tabas and Vice President Thoniel Aballe, along with FPA Provincial Officer Sunday Flores visited the said LGU and discussed the details of the activity, especially the disposal of the collected empty pesticide containers with the chairman of Agriculture of the city, Councilor Jun Alcover.
