“That company is going to burn the garbage, the tires. It is not even going to do a treatment, it is going to cause a lot of damage to the health of people with diseases that nobody wants to have,” said Raúl Shifferli.

The mayor of Lautaro, Raúl Shifferli, ratified his opposition to the WTE plant.

This after, under the standards of qualification of companies, the Seremi de Salud classified the project only as “annoying”, despite the fact that will handle tons of garbage from Temuco.

These declarations may mean progress towards the approval of this project, which seeks to install a garbage incineration plant in the Lautaro Industrial Park.

Specifically, it is solid waste that cannot be recycled or reused.

“That company is going to burn the garbage, the tires. He is not even going to do a treatment, he is going to cause a lot of damage to the health of people with diseases that nobody wants to have, ”said Shifferli.


Given these statements, from the Seremi stressed that the classification of “annoying” company follows the evaluation criteria dictated by the Ministry of Health.
