Trucks with waste sent back to Austria

THE TWO trucks carrying illegal waste that had been detained at the Slovak-Austrian border at Berg for 10 days returned to Austria on June 4.

Environment Ministry representatives managed to submit all the documents required for the trucks to return to Austria, ministry spokesman Peter Višváder said.

Slovak customs officers caught the trucks on May 25 near a former stone quarry in Dubnica nad Váhom. The drivers were not able to produce a waste transport license, claiming to have loaded the waste in Austria in order to drive it to a customer in Slovakia. The waste consisted of plastic bottles, municipal waste, transfusion bags, used syringes and rubber gloves.
