The Ministry of Environment and Water is inspecting 8 non-reclaimed municipal waste landfills, included in the European Commission’s criminal procedure against Bulgaria, the department announced. They are in the municipalities of Byala (Varnensko), Pernik, Velingrad, Dupnitsa, Pirdop, Boboshevo, Kocherinovo and Kardjali.

At the beginning of August, the Minister of Environment and Water, Rositsa Karamfilova, met with the mayors because of the delayed reclamation of the old municipal landfills. The Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications demanded from the municipalities a schedule of activities and started weekly inspections.

After on-site inspections by employees of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications of the landfills in Pernik, Dupnitsa and Boboshevo, it was established that there is progress in the implementation of construction activities at all three landfills.

An inspection of the landfill in Velingrad has established that work is being done on finishing activities, and the commitment made by the municipal management is to finalize the technical reclamation activities by the middle of September.

At the landfill in Byala (Varna region), the field work has been completed and an act no. 15 has already been issued for completed technical reclamation.

The inspection of the municipal depot in Kardzhali has established progress in the planned construction and installation works (SMR), which are being carried out according to the commitment made by the municipality. For the landfill in the municipality of Kocherinovo, there is a construction permit from the end of August and a date has been set for the start of the activities within the next week. A delay was reported in the start of the activities to implement the reclamation of the landfill in the municipality of Pirdop.

A year ago, the EC warned that Bulgaria was about to be brought before the Court of the EU for the payment of significant financial sanctions due to the still unreclaimed 43 landfills for non-hazardous waste out of a total of 113 included in the criminal procedure. After the completion of the technical reclamation of the landfill in Byala, there are currently only 7 such landfills left, for which Bulgaria must make maximum efforts to complete them, so that the amount of sanctions is reduced, the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications specifies.
