The Trnava regional police spokeswoman Martina Kredatusová told the TASR newswire that he had been driving the waste to the illegal dump since January 2013. “Weekly, they dumped at least 10 big containers of construction and other oversized waste like plastics, wires, glass, carpets, and the like,” she said, adding that these also included dump like insulation materials with asbestos. The resulting waste took up some 4,000 cubic metres. The suspect faces one to five years in prison if convicted.
