  • Neighbors reported the disposal of syringes, gauze, dressings, diapers and other disposables on the road of Colón Avenue.

The Institute of Environmental and Animal Protection preventively closed the Chutro Clinic due to the dumping of municipal solid waste and pathogens on public roads.

It was the neighbors who came across syringes, dressings, used diapers, gauze and other items on the road on Colón Avenue, in front of a container, and filed the corresponding complaint.

Pathogenic waste endangers public health. It is the obligation of every medical establishment to have specialized transportation services for this type of waste, as well as urban solids for specific final disposal treatment.

Under no circumstances can both types of waste be mixed, nor placed in containers for removal by home collection companies.

It was found that the clinic recently terminated the contract with the company that collected pathogenic elements.

Given the seriousness of the situation, the Institute of Environmental and Animal Protection ordered the immediate preventive closure of the establishment.

Care is maintained for patients who are hospitalized and need to remain in the clinic with assistance.

The competent Environmental Offenses Court is the one who will order the measures to be taken, such as economic and administrative sanctions.

This is a repeat incident by the institution, which presents administrative records and criminal complaints from the municipality.

For environmental complaints or incorrect disposal of waste from Large Generators or businesses, contact the telephone numbers: 3512089570/133 (Polo Ambiental Headquarters); 3512265823 (CPC Garden IPA Point); 3516100473 (IPA Point CPC Argüello).
