The tons of garbage now in Misamis Oriental are set to be re-exported to South Korea this month, the Bureau of Customs (BOC) said.
This was after a meeting between the representatives from both the Philippines and South Korea was held at the Mindanao Container Terminal Sub-port, Tagoloan, Misamis Oriental.
During the meeting, BOC said that Seoul agreed to shoulder the shipping cost of $47,430 without the arrastre and demurrage charges.
The 51 containers of garbage would be shipped back to South Korea on January 9, while the bulk shipment consisting of 5, 197.91 tons of waste garbage would be re-exported on or before January 30, it said.
The tons of garbage arrived in Mindanao last year.
