Security increased at Guanapo Landfill following fatal incident


    SWMCOL says it has taken additional measures to ensure safety at landfills under its purview.

    This follows an incident yesterday in which a woman was killed after coming into contact with the bucket of an excavator.

    SWMCOL says it has increased on-site security to curb the unauthorized entry of salvagers to the Guanapo site.

    It also reiterated that those using the landfills should exercise caution while on the premises, and adhere to health and safety guidelines.

    The Guanapo Landfill was reopened at 9am today following safety stand-down meetings with Staff and Contractors.
