Pampanga earns P25M per day from quarry operations



CITY OF SAN FERNANDO — The quarry industry in Pampanga puts in some P25 million per day to the local economy, directly benefiting thousands of Kapampangans, aside from boosting Capitol’s coffers, a local official said on Tuesday.

Engr. Art Punsalan, Provincial Environment and Natural Resources officer, said during a meeting with around 60 quarry operators and permittees that the “ripple effect” of quarrying in the province benefits various sectors – from pedicabs, carinderias and vulcanizing shops — that pushes the wheels of Pampanga’s economy on a daily basis.

“More or less on our estimate, P25 million per day is being contributed by the quarry industry to various stakeholders. That is considering we have 3,500 trucks hauling our quarry materials to different points in Luzon and Pampanga,” he said.

Punsalan noted the amount of money put in circulation from cash transactions in quarrying starts with fuel or diesel purchases.

“With 3,500 trucks, you roughly have P14 million for the P4,000 cost of diesel. Then you have a driver and a helper taking home a combined P800 in wages, or about P2.8 million per day, which they share to their families who purchase goods from sari-sari stores and take rides on pedicabs and jeepneys. These two, when en route, also eat in canteens or roadside carinderias. With that number of trucks, P700,000 in meals is spent — in cash,” he told Sun.Star Pampanga.

He further said that there are also “hustlers” who get no lower than P100 per truck per day, or some P350,000 dished out daily. For the maintenance of trucks, an estimated P350,000 goes into circulation, apart from toll charges of about P1.6 million and passway fees of P700,000.

“So many stakeholders are able to send their children to school, live sufficiently daily and even get proper healthcare,” he added.

He said that a driver and a helper of the 3,500 trucks or a total of 7,000 workers, could immediately address their families daily average expense of about P300.

“That’s P2.1 million daily driving the local economy. In fact, with our 80 quarry sites, each with four helpers receiving P1,500, you have more or less another P480,000 going into the grassroots economy. And all these are apart from the contributions of quarrying to Capitol’s programs and projects. The ripple effect is really encompassing, if you take a careful look at it,” he said.
