Residents of the village of Verkh-Tula, Novosibirsk Oblast, opposed the construction of a landfill, which is planned to be located 2.5 km from their settlement. More than 1 thousand people have already signed an appeal against it. Activists reported this in their community on vk.com.
Residents of the village of Verkh-Tula, Novosibirsk Oblast, opposed the construction of the landfill, because it will be located too close to the settlement: only 2.5 km away. The residents calculated that five garbage trucks per hour would arrive there around the clock, and the total volume of waste would be 300 thousand tons per year. It is also planned to dispose PET waste, plastic, glass, and polyester batting there. People are afraid that melting these materials will spoil their air. There are already more than 400 people in the chat of the initiative residents. Activists are now collecting signatures against the landfill.
On September 16, they held the first rally against the construction of the landfill. And they intend to come out again. According to Taiga.info, more than 1 thousand people have already signed an appeal to the Governor of Novosibirsk Oblast Andrei Travnikov.
The Government of Novosibirsk Oblast wrote about the construction of this complex back in early August: according to their idea, the road there should be separate, and the construction of the landfill will give 400 new jobs.
