The state will take care of six dangerous landfills that pose a risk to the environment. The Environment and Defence Ministries should secure their disposal by using money from EU funds, the government decided at its November 16 session.

The Environment Ministry should be responsible for disposing of the former landfill of industrial waste in Bratislava’s borough Vrakuňa. Solving this problem is a priority, said Minister László Sólymos, as reported by the TASR newswire.
