Although the illegal landfill in Suto Orizari has begun to be cleaned, work is lagging behind as the landfill is being refilled in parallel with the clean-up. Trash ignition continues.
Prime Minister Zoran Zaev says that full cleaning requires more funds than planned.
Procedures for the cleaning of illegal landfills should be led by municipalities whose territories include landfills, but they have no funds. The prime minister said the funds worth 200 million denars, which were earmarked for the clean-up of state-owned landfills, have already been spent. Therefore, he said additional funding was needed.
