Improper disposal of medical waste is putting garbage collectors—and the public—at risk

Despite governmental regulations, a number of hospitals and clinics are not segregating their waste properly, leaving needles and body parts for general waste collectors.

Many medical institutions in Kathmandu are still failing to maintain waste disposal standards for hazardous waste due to lack of knowledge and resources, putting both workers and the environment at risk.

 

Sometime last year, a strong smell of rotting flesh started to emanate from the waste dumping area of the Bir Hospital. Workers from Metrocity Waste Management, which collects Bir Hospital’s general waste, started to sift through the garbage. Metrocity Waste Management collects non-risk general waste from hospitals, clinics, medical shops, medical laboratories and households. They soon found the source of the smell—an amputated leg. This was the second time in a year that workers had found a body part in the general waste.

This novel idea was born out of a decades-long water crisis in the area.

पानी सञ्चयका लागि अध्ययन

(पर्वत) — यसपटक मनुसुनी वर्षा न्यून भयो । बेसीका किसानले धान रोप्न पाएनन् । लेकमा कोदो सप्रिएन । यी र मौसमसँग सम्बन्धित कारण खोज्दै प्राविधिक टोली यतिबेला जिल्लाको लेकाली बस्तीमा पुगेको छ । भू तथा जलाधार व्यवस्थापन कार्यालयले लेकाली जमिनमा पानीको सतह व्यवस्थापन तथा पानीको पुनर्भरण पोखरी व्यवस्थापनका लागि सम्भाव्यता अध्ययन गरिरहेको छ । लेकाली खर्कका सिमसार क्षेत्रमा पानीको स्रोत व्यवस्थापन गरी पोखरी निर्माण गर्नेबारे सम्भाव्यता अध्ययन थालिएको हो । लेकाली डाँडाका टुप्पामा परेको वर्षातको पानी अडिन नपाउँदा तल्लो क्षेत्रमा पानीका मुल सुक्ने, पानीका नियमित स्रोत हराउँदै जाने, मुल सर्नेजस्ता समस्याले जलवायुमा नकारात्मक असर पुर्‍याएको छ ।
