Government Shuts Down Illegal and Improvised Landfill

Environmental Issues#Panama - At this moment authorities from the Regional Health Bureau in San Miguelito, Las Cumbres and Chilbre, working in conjunction with the Bureau of Cleaning and the Office of Metropolitan Health, are closing several improvised landfills in a field near the area of Kuna Nega on the road that leads to Cerro Patacón. In the place they found mosquito larvae and all kinds of waste. Underneath all this, they found methane gas which is a danger to the community. The director of the Metropolitan Health Region, Jorge Hassan, said previously there have been fires in this area. The number of makeshift landfills is similar in size of Cerro Patacón. During the operation they found a truck throwing waste in a prohibited place. They did not find the driver. Hassan said he would increase penalties for people who throw trash in places where it's not allowed, and he also spoke of the possibility of apprehending those who do. (Dia a Dia)
