„Fourteen lorries of waste need to be driven out, which is as many lories shipped the waste in, but we may need even more lories due to the waste’s volume,” Drvar Mayor Dusica Runic told Srna news agency.
A total of 14 lorries had imported some 300 tons of waste from Italy, in July last year, and dumped it in the property of the former company “Grmec,” without ever obtaining a permit for it.
Runic stated that one lorry drove off on Wednesday and that the removal continues Thursday. She pointed out that the deadline for the execution of works is still running – 120 days from the end of December, expressing hope that the contractor will respect the undertaken obligations by the end of the agreed deadline.
At the beginning of July, “Krom reciklaza” company from Drvar imported a total of 294,574 kilograms of textile waste in BiH worth 16,125 Bosnian marks (some €8,000). Most of that waste was dumped in Drvar in the area of the former company “Grmec.”
A part of the waste was dumped in Bosanski Grahovo, and two lorries were dumped in Bihac.
