Bulgarian Ecologists Want to Dictate Trash Facility Construction

Date: 02.11.2006

Bulgarian eco-unions want to have their word heard on the choice of technology for Sofia garbage processing facility.

This was sloganed by nine environmentalist organisations at a protest parade on Wednesday.

Children disguised as different pieces of garbage, thus trying to send a message to the adults to find a solution to Sofia's trash crisis, also joined the protest parade.

The baling of garbage is an expensive, inefficient, and environment-hostile method, the eco-organisations said.

The environmentalists insist that Sofia terminated its contracts with baling companies because there are proofs the 3-year guarantee is not functional and the stinky bales are torn up long before the expiration of the guarantee.

The national environmental movement "Ekoglasnost" has lodged a complaint against Sofia's Mayor Boyko Borissov for his refusal to interfere with the contracts' termination.

At present Sofia is at a loss as to where its abundance of garbage bales would be stored. Media in the country have already started talking of a "garbage war," "trash terrorism," and calling the waste crisis a karate gig.
