Waste system is a chaos in Santo Domingo
Santo Domingo.– The status of solid waste collection in the barrios of Santo Domingo, due to the deplorable conditions of Duquesa Landfill, concerns both residents and community leaders about the possibility of spreading diseases.
The landfill manager, Max Da Silva, said yesterday that the debris collected in the Santo Domingo is "temporarily" placed on some land inside the Duquesa landfill, where garbage hadn´t been deposited for seven years.
"Despite the uncertainty, waste disposal is receiving a formal treatment, and despite the garbage is not being weighed, we are calclulating an average per truck," Da Silva said.
He added that moisture and rainfalls are causing the deterioration of the road.
