«The problems that have accumulated over previous months, have become critical. The opportunity to take out the trash blocked, take out the trash then there is no possibility. Carriers have tried to remedy the situation, but fact is fact. Just make it impossible to take out the trash. That is, we now face the fact that the rubbish is accumulated, we export, but not at the pace that it should be. Considering the warming, which will be soon, it may lead to violation of environmental norms and violation of the sanitary situation in the city,» he said.

The company AVA, «SANKOM», «Griner», Livesexawards work, but very hard. Every day is an uphill struggle, cars with Lviv debris that travel to Central Ukraine, where there is agreement with the landfills, stop, making it impossible to unload the garbage. These machines are sent back to Lviv, accompanied by police,» — said in turn the mayor of Lviv Andriy Sadovy.

I can officially declare: I will not take any action that may be harmful to our state, and will not give anyone any command to any vote that may lead to a change in the device in our country. This is my principled position,» — said the mayor.
