Environment Ministry starts proceedings on Pezinok waste dump

Slovakia's Environment Ministry has started administrative proceedings to determine whether a decision by the Environmental Inspectorate to allow construction of a waste dump in central Pezinok should be overturned.

Slovakia's Environment Ministry has started administrative proceedings to determine whether a decision by the Environmental Inspectorate to allow construction of a waste dump in central Pezinok should be overturned.

The news emerged after a meeting on Thursday, October 30, between Environment Minister Ján Chrbet, representatives of a local group opposed to the dump, and Marian Kočner, a representative of investment company Westminster Brothers, which is building the dump.

The Regional Court in Bratislava will decide on the legality of the waste dump on December 4. Meanwhile, construction of the waste dump is continuing and, according to Kočner, will be interrupted only if administrative bodies issue a preliminary decision ordering this.

According to the Environment Ministry, such a decision may be issued at any time during the proceedings. According to the plans, the construction should be completed in mid-December. The ministry said it will try to issue a final decision on the waste dump by that date. SITA
