The regional landfills – a health risk

The regional landfills

Thousand landfills. Fifty of them are municipal, but do not possess work permits. Only one is legal and works according to standards. Macedonia is covered with trash. Laws on environmental protection exist, but they are not implemented. What is the reason? It costs money. There are no funds for this purpose in the State budget. The burden will have to be carried by the citizens through higher bills for communal fees. However, there isn’t a politician who would make such a decision!
