Ebola waste disposal contract given to company that was fined for illegally dumping aborted babies in landfill
by L.J. Devon, Staff Writer
(NaturalNews) There are so many unborn babies being discarded in the world today that some are now being illegally shoveled into landfills right along with household waste. One waste disposal company was caught doing this in 2011, trying to cut corners and save money. How is their morbid business practice reprimanded? Just a few years later, the company responsible is awarded the special privilege of hauling away high-risk Ebola waste from the Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas. Apparently, the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) doesn't care about this company's sketchy background. Can we really trust a company that illegally dumped babies in a landfill in order to save money to properly dispose of Ebola waste? Why did this unethical company get the contract?
U.S. government grants controversial Stericycle permit to dispose of Ebola wasteThe DOT just granted controversial Illinois-based Stericycle a permit to haul away large quantities of Ebola waste out of Texas. Stericycle has a questionable history of illegally dumping aborted babies in landfills and was even caught using the babies to fuel an Oregon power plant.
The DOT permit details how the waste is to be disposed, providing instructions for operation controls during transit, but the Department of Transportation gives Stericycle plenty of leeway on how the waste will be disposed. The carrier is supposed to maintain a written spill response plan just in case there is a travel accident. The waste is to be sealed in a series of inner and outer packaging and disinfected with CDC-approved cleaners. The question still remains: How will it all be disposed of from there and can Stericycle be trusted?
Stericycle caught using deceased babies to fuel Oregon power plantThere are some groups who already mistrust Stericycle after the company was fined $42,000 in 2011 for illegally dumping aborted babies in a municipal landfill in Austin, Texas. The babies were disgracefully dumped into the landfill alongside household and commercial garbage. If Stericycle broke their permit then in the most morbid way, how can they be trusted with Ebola waste? The Texas Commission of Environmental Quality (TCEQ) ruled that Stericyle failed to "prevent the disposal of treated fetuses at a municipal solid waste landfill," and TCEQ also charged the disposal company with "failure to comply with permit conditions."
To make matters worse, a little over a year ago, Stericycle was caught using deceased babies from an abortion clinic to fuel a local power plant in Oregon. Upon the discovery, the Marion County Board of Commissioners in Oregon severed their contract with Stericycle.
Still, that matter won't affect Stericycle too much, for the federal government just gave them a landmark permit to take care of Ebola waste in Texas.
