Under Section 37 of Republic Act (RA) 9003 or the Ecological Solid Waste Management Act of 2000, open dumpsites should be closed in 2004, while controlled dumpsites in 2006.
In response to this, reports said that in 2004, Payatas open dumpsite was converted to a “controlled disposal facility.” In 2011, Payatas “sanitary landfill” started operations and was closed in December 2017.
