Sofia "Forced to Sign Garbage Disposal Deal at Any Cost"

Politics | March 1, 2007, Thursday // 00:00

Sofia Municipality is now forced to sign contracts with Plovdiv and Karlovo for the transportation of the garbage bales at any costs, as long as they start taking them right away, mayor Boyko Borisov told Darik News.

Borissov had previously announced that the two municipalities are trying to swindle him with the conditions of accepting 280,000 tons of Sofia's piling trash. Still he now admits that Sofia has no other choice and would even settle for unfavorable deals as long as it gets rid of the stinking bales.

Karlovo has already received BGN 17 M to boost its infrastructure in exchange for housing the waste, but Plovdiv is still waiting on its promised BGN 48 M. Local authorities haven't done their job right to provide a "green wave" for the garbage all the way to the two new depots, Borissov claimed.
