Pradeep Mule, director of Passco Environmental Solutions Pvt Ltd. who works for the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) said that used condoms and sanitary napkins were biomedical wastes and had to be destroyed. “Rotary Clubs in the city have come forward to collect the napkins and destroy it in incinerators, but there is still no system to destroy the used condoms. In the future we may have to seek the help of Rotary clubs to dispose condoms also.”

Champs, ever seen a complaint against used condoms in a local publication?

Anna Nakale said in an interview with New Era on Wednesday that residents from different locations in Otjiwarongo dump their rubbish at the open area in the Ombili location just a few metres from her family’s shack residence. According to Nakale people dump pills, used condoms, used female sanitary pads, rotten food and sometimes, dead animals.

New Era inspected the dumpsite on Wednesday and can confirm Nakale’s fears. “The children in the location use the used condoms as balloons. My daughter even came with a small dead decomposed dog once,” a very annoyed Nakale told this reporter.
