Duquesa landfill operates at turtle pace, DR Gov’t threatens intervention

The Dominican Republic’s Ministry of Environment and city governments of Greater Santo Domingo have rejected the 10 am to 4 pm schedule of Lajun Corporation that operates the dump and ordered the dump be open from 8 am or the dump would be intervened.

The Ministry has backed that city governments revoke their contracts with Lajun and imposed a RD$16 million fine on the corporation. The corporation seeks to increase the average cost per ton from US$2 to US$9.

Diario Libre reports that the company is allowing the entry of the garbage trucks at a “turtle pace.” While a report in El Dia says the landfill operations were on the normal schedule on 20 July 2017.

Diario Libre reports sources saying that the dump opened at 10:30 am and heavy machinery is not in operation causing major delays.
