CORFU. “No work has been carried out on the landfill – The waste bales are still lying there without any licensing”.

The reactions caused by the Central Corfu Mayor's statements at the Conference on Sustainable Solid Waste Management held recently in Corfu are continuing.
 
The Temploni Association responded by stating that “everything that was said about the current condition of the landfill, recycling and the old waste management facility is completely false”.
 
The Association’s statement:
 
“We are obliged to inform our fellow citizens about the current situation in Temploni regarding the non-rational waste management.
 
You must have watched the Central Corfu Mayor's recent public statements on the occasion of the conference on sustainable solid waste management and the circular economy.
 
Everything that was said about the current condition of the landfill, recycling and the old waste management facility is completely false.
 
1) No work has been carried out to the landfill. It started in 2019 and it had to be completed until April 2020 and since then it remains as it is. Not even the half-collapsed perimeter wall at the 3rd cell has been repaired.
 
2) The waste bales are still lying at the landfill without any licensing and they are 80,000 tons.
 
3) Strangely enough, the 2nd cell is constantly increasing in volume even though all the waste is supposedly being transported.
 
4) Recycling remains at very low levels of about 5%.
 
5) As for the old waste management facility, the results are well known.
 
Do you remember the Mayor's pre-election statement? ‘Even if we create ten waste management facilities, if we do not start recycling with sorting at source and composting, the facilities alone will not save us.’
 
However, there is neither a waste management facility nor recycling.
 
But we are paying more than €200 per ton for the transportation of waste, as well as the fines for the plastics we do not recycle.
 
So let us all think and ask ourselves: What exactly is happening in Corfu that makes us lag behind in basic infrastructure projects?”
