Tons of Medical Waste in front of Hospital in Mostar

After the ban on the disposal of medical waste at the Uborak landfill, the Mostar hospitals has been in the big problems for several weeks.

For a long time, a large pile of medical waste stood in near the hospital these days, while today we have a similar scene in the courtyard of the Faculty of Medicine, within the University Clinical Hospital Mostar.

The amount of waste is huge, containing infusion bottles, things used during treatment, beds becoming surplus in hospital rooms, which points out on the dangerous situation where hazardous waste accumulates for days near an institution such as a hospital.

Medical waste was one of the reasons why the Uborak Landfill had not recently received an environmental permit from the FBiH Ministry of Environment, Vijesti.ba news portal reports.
