A woman is now dead following an accident at the Guanapo Landfill this morning.
SWMCOL says around 10:50am, the female salvager inadvertently came into contact with the bucket of an excavator.
She succumbed to her injuries shortly after.
The Landfill has been temporarily closed to facilitate a police investigation into the incident.
SWMCOL has since urged users of the nation’s landfills to exercise caution while on the premises and to always adhere to health and safety guidelines.
