677 heaping piles of trash have finally been cleaned up in Lviv since June 23. The press service of the Lviv Regional State Administration reported that.
Currently the solid waste removal is performed on a regular basis. It is also noted that arrangement of separate collection of municipal solid waste will be the next step for administration.
“Since July 3, the Lviv Regional State Administration introduced weighing of the solid waste to accurately control the quantity of waste accumulated in the city and transported to regional polygons for disposal. The solid waste is also transported to the polygons beyond Lviv region, on a contractual basis,” the Lviv Regional State Administration reported.
Lviv was 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.
