According to the Department of development and exploiting housing and utilities, 82% of hard domestic waste (which makes 5360) are now removed from Lviv now as of July 5. Lviv Regional Administration press service reported that.
The press service also noted that the waste removal works are still underway, the 366 flooded container yards were cleaned up in the city. The operators work overtime with the involvement of additional equipment.
“The regional administration set up the current waste removal from the rest of the flooded container yards, the works on municipal improvement of polygons and dumps to store the hard domestic waste from Lviv,” reads the message.
Lviv is suffering from the trash blockade. Every day the city produces about 600 tons of waste, but there is no place to export them. More than a third of the urns are overcrowded. After the fire at trash dump near Grybovychi village (near Lviv) in last year, the city was forced to take out the garbage to other landfills, which eventually refused to accept the waste.
The Lviv city state administration fails to move the garbage out of the city in good time; since summer 2016, it became even more complicated, due to the large fire at a waste deposit in Hrybovychi village, lying close to Lviv. That badly complicated things, as the garbage keeps piling up and there is not much place to move it to.
