As trash piles up, agencies scramble to fix landfill road
Santo Domingo. – The ministries of the Environment, Public Health and Public Works, jointly with the Greater San Domingo city councils, Thursday adopted measures to deal with the crisis stemming from the ruined road to the landfill at Duquesa.
Environment minister Ernesto Reyna said Duquesa will now operate round-the-clock, with more heavy equipment, and access by people while garbage trucks unload will be also restricted.
Reyna also announced the repairs of the landfill’s access highway, now along the Airport at El Higuero, while the reconstruction of the highway at El Casabe concludes.
