Chairman of the Lviv regional state administration Oleh Synyutka said to 112.ua that removal of garbage from Lviv began today, on June 23. According to him, this is the third time that the regional administration takes over the functions of removing garbage from Lviv.
"We agreed with the polygons of the Lviv region, according to the memorandum that was signed, and today the amount of garbage of 6,500 tons accumulated in the city was divided between the polygons where we started taking it. Also, the garbage that accumulates daily is being transported there. Our task is to completely clean the city of rubbish within two weeks, and the work has already begun, " Synyutka said.
Further, according to him, there are two options: either the city will transfer the function of handling solid household waste to the regional state administration permanently.
"The second option, if they do not transfer it, we also, as we did already, will clean the city, so that they continue our work in this sphere," Synyutka said.
Earlier it was reported that Lviv authorities requested the Cabinet of Ministers to declare city zone of environmental emergency. Construction of the new waste disposal plant may be completed only after 2 years.
