Campaign against the location of storage site for especially toxic waste
In its attempt to solve the problem with the especially toxic wastes produced on the area of the Municipality of Stara Zagora, the Municipal Administration proposed to build a facility for storage and processing of these substances. The location had been fixed violating a number of safety measures and legislative acts. NGO Earth Forever pointed out the gaps and insufficient data in the EIA Report to the Ministry of Environment and Waters; involved the media to support the efforts of the citizens to locate a more appropriate site for the facility; pointed out the lack of competence and carelessness of the authorised municipal officials; supported the local rural community to defend their position in front of the decision-making authorities.
As a result of the campaign the municipality administration re-though their position and proposed a more appropriate and safer location for the facility.
