Residents of the La Nogalera neighborhood and others surrounding the El Deán park complain about the contamination caused by the 18 de Marzo transfer plant, owned by Caabsa Eagle, a concessionaire of the garbage collection service. However, the company announces that it is working towards total closure.
The place is located in the area of 18 de Marzo and Gobernador Curiel avenues, in Guadalajara. Its operations were transferred to the new plant known as La Nogalera, which stands less than a kilometer away.
“We are doing the tests (in La Nogalera) and we are still not sure what is going to happen. Temporarily and gradually it will have to be closed (March 18), once the new plant is ready to operate”, explains Óscar Hernández, legal manager of Caabsa Eagle.
Given this, people who live nearby ask for sanitation actions.
“When it rains you can smell the smell all day. And in the hot season there are more flies… it’s all because of the garbage they left behind. There is a lot of contamination due to this transfer plant,” laments Andrés.
“It smells very ugly, there is a lot of contamination. When it rains, a lot of garbage runs off and all the rotten water that remains in the plant comes down,” says Ana María Vicente.
“There are a lot of smells because there is still garbage. There are a lot of flies day and night because there is a lot of waste. Here they start buying all the scrap and they leave pure garbage… that’s every day”, criticizes Rogelio Orozco.
