SAHRC: Medical Waste Incinerator Violates Rights

The SAHRC finds that EnviroServ’s regional medical waste incineration facility in Bloemfontein compromises community members’ right to a clean environment

The South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) has found that EnviroServ’s regional medical waste incineration facility in Bloemfontein compromises community members’ right to a clean environment.
 
The SAHRC investigated after residents complained that the company’s incinerator has been billowing out large volumes of smoke during the day and night for the past two years.
 
The commission argues that as a result, the air in the area is polluted, affecting the health of residents in the area.
