Measures will be taken regarding the Andralanitra landfill.

The SMA, or Municipal Sanitation Company, has taken significant measures to prevent fires at the Andralanitra landfill. To this end, training and capacity building were provided to SMA employees.

In 2022, the Andralanitra landfill was devastated by a month-long fire, leaving disastrous consequences in its wake. The workers, commonly known as “mpikandra”, were at the origin of this fire by lighting fires to light up the night, ignoring the serious risks that this would cause. These fires quickly grew out of control, igniting uncontrollable flames that engulfed much of the landfill.

This disaster caused deep discontent among surrounding residents, who were faced with the harmful consequences of the fire on their health, safety and environment. Complaints have poured in, with residents expressing anger and concern over the negligence that led to this critical situation.

“We have recently taken strict measures to regulate the work of our employees at the SMA, while providing clear guidelines to waste workers, to prevent such an incident from happening again. This initiative is of particular importance as the hot season approaches,” underlined the general director of the Municipal Sanitation Company, Tiana Razafimanahaka, in a statement last week.

He stressed that it is imperative to prevent environmental pollution caused by waste, stressing that it is unacceptable for landfills to become fire hotspots. For Tiana Razafimanahaka, the most effective response to a fire is to intervene quickly. Whether at home or in the field, putting out a fire as soon as it starts is essential. As he points out, the smaller the fire, the quicker it can be brought under control.
