The administration of Asenovgrad confirmed negotiating with Sofia the garbage issues
“By the end of the week the capacity of the landfill “Kapsidata” will be made clear. Then, we can renew the negotiations with Sofia to dispose of the capital’s wastes”, announced the vice-mayor of Asenovgrad Stoyan Dimitrov.
The capacity of the city’s landfill is nearly 150 thousand tons, which is nearly 10 times lower than the announced capacity days before the session of the local administration – 1 million and 200 thousand tons.
The vice-mayor explained that the municipality administration isn’t confused and oblivious to the capacity, but it was rather a printing mistake. “The smaller capacity of the landfill is in accordance with the urbanization plan of Asenovgrad,” added Dimitrov.
The needed space for the new regional depot for waste disposal wasn’t subtracted from the entire area of the landfill, thus causing the mistake.
