Poland is being flooded by other people's waste

16 Jul 2006 /  #1
"Poland is being flooded by other people's waste," President of Poland's Chamber for Waste Management (PIGO) Dariusz Matlak said, quoted by the Polish PAP news agency.

While some 500,000 tons of foreign garbage are disposed of legally in Poland each year, just as much is smuggled into and dumped against the law in a bid to slash the costs of waste disposal."

How nice... Soon there'll be no "healthy environment" and "organic food" from Poland. Nice move from the German's government that is worried German people buy too much from Poland and too little from their own German producers.

Sad but true... In my region (small country) they built two large dump places - one of them is almost as big in size as the whole population of 200+ people there. Boy, in summer it STINKS. Not to mention the value of the property severly declined.

Several years ago I used to pick mushrooms there...

Surely this is in breach of environmental directives? The government are aware of the problem and will urge local communities to adopt a more responsible attitude towards waste disposal.

That was my attempt at sounding like a politician. I guess I did ok.

This is how you flood a country with your waste - literally !

raw untreated sewage is pumped every day out of the Jewish settlements, along large metal pipes, straight onto Palestinian land is-suppressing-a-secret-it-must-face-816661.html
