Mayor Virginia Raggi, as the guide of the Metropolitan City of Rome, signed a contingent and urgent ordinance for the reopening of the Albano Laziale landfill. The plant, as ordered by the mayor, will be able to accommodate up to a maximum of 1,100 tons per day of waste processed by the treatment plants, for a period of 180 days. The dramatic crisis of recent days, with overflowing bins and piles of waste abandoned in the sun, convinced the mayor to intervene. The provision, which will come into force on Friday, highlights the criticalities in finding outlets both for the lack of systems in the Region and for the expiry (today) of the ordinance signed by the governor of Lazio, Nicola Zingaretti, which authorized the transfer of part of the unsorted waste from the capital in Viterbo and Civitavecchia (but the site of Fosso Crepacuore will close on 15 August). In the meantime, 54 municipalities in Lazio will have to do without, albeit temporarily, the Tmb managed by the company Rida di Aprilia which will go into maintenance with a 70 percent reduction in the flows destined for mechanical-biological treatment. For the municipality of Rome, as a whole and as a combination of multiple factors, a negative delta of 500 tons per day is estimated between the forecast of the flows available for treatment, insufficient, and the required needs..
The provision, explains the Capitol, was prepared to deal, in the short term, with the crisis in the management of the waste cycle that is affecting the provinces of Lazio. The ordinance identifies the existence of situations of exceptional and urgent need to protect public health and the environment, in order to avert the risk of a health emergency. The reopening of the Albano landfill, underlines the Municipality, was among the hypotheses being examined by the technical tables convened at the Ministry of Ecological Transition. The measure is likely to clash with the opposition of the mayors of the Municipalities of Lazio: the mayor of Fiumicino, Esterino Montino, had started the revolt: We are not the landfill of the capital. And his colleague from Albano, Massimiliano Borrelli, who on Wednesday intervened in the courtroom Giulio Cesare during the extraordinary council on waste, ready to appeal to the TAR to challenge a measure deemed an attack on our territories.
