A bug in the San Marcos landfill, Donostialdea expands
The stench has been seen especially in places near the landfill, as Renteria, Pasajes and Lezo and neighborhoods Altza Donostia, Herrera and Intxaurrondo. The smell came to the Hospital Donostia, where on Saturday afternoon was the most frequent comment from patients and relatives. The landfill has a plant that converts methane generated in the putrefaction of the waste into electricity. That methane is transported to the plant by underground pipes, that `s the reason of the smell.
