The State Comptroller General (CGE) reported a gloss of $ 3.5 million for the Metropolitan Public Cleaning Company (Emaseo) for not supporting the calculation of payments for the solid waste collection service to contractors between 2018 and 2019 .

According to the control body, there was a civil liability that caused the damage to the company of the Municipality of Quito.

This examination began before the emergency declaration issued in 2018. The responsibility falls on seven Emaseo officials and three contractors.

According to the special examination, “technical criteria were not used to determine the type of vehicles, cargo volume, service time and payment of days, so disbursements for the amount of the gloss were not justified.”

In the document released by the State Comptroller General’s Office, it was also indicated that to calculate the payments, the net weight of the waste was multiplied by the cargo volume of the dump trucks. However, the actual dimensions of the boxes that each vehicle had were not considered and the same amounts were paid for all the dump trucks, although they had different capacities, therefore, they transported different loads.

The contract establishes that the minimum transport should be eight net tons per day or four tons per trip. But in the audit carried out by the Comptroller they found records of 0.72 to 2.05 net tons per day, weighed in the solid waste transfer stations.

This, together with other observations of missing documentation and studies not contemplated, generated this gloss that the municipal company would have. Until May 2019, the mayor of Quito was Mauricio Rodas, his successor was Jorge Yunda.
