Two truckloads of medical waste were found dumped in a vacant land at Chettipalayam in Coimbatore on Sunday. Usually, the dumpings happen at midnight.

The Tamilnadu Pollution Control Board ( TNPCB ) and the Revenue Department are trying to find out the persons who were involved in the dumping, after photos and videos of the medical waste circulated on social media.

The Chettipalayam Panchayat has contacted Tekno Therm Industries, a common biomedical waste treatment facility in Coimbatore, to process the medical waste. (contact Tekno Therm industries at 0422 450 4040)

Biomedical wastes contain potentially harmful microorganisms which may pollute the air, water, and land that in turn may cause health problems to the residents.

The peoples expect the officials should regulate the safe transport of medical waste and must be authorized by the local EPA and health bodies.

Coimbatorians can contact the corporation if they suspected such things in their habitat. Corporation number +91 – 422 – 2390261, 2390262, 2390263
