PM asking city mayors, head of rural councils to help in accepting garbage from Lviv
Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman has asked local self-governance agencies to respond to the request of Lviv Mayor Andriy Sadovy if they receive one and temporarily accept garbage from Lviv at their municipal landfills.
"I want now to ask the entire country: dear colleagues, city mayors and rural council heads, heads of regional administrations, if Lviv Mayor Andriy Ivanovych Sadovy apply to you for help with the removal of garbage from Lviv I ask you to help if you can," the prime minister said at a phone meeting devoted to the preparations for winter and held on Monday.
Groysman said that it is important to receive the answer from the Lviv mayor what time he needs to settle the problem systemically – to build a landfill and accept waste on one of the 14 land parcels in Lviv region that were proposed.
The prime minister said that he is ready to allocate UAH 50 million from the reserve fund of Ukraine's Cabinet of Ministers for the launch of this landfill.
Earlier Sadovy accused central authorities, including the government, of creating obstacles in removing waste from Lviv city that lost its own landfill.
