Europese Commissie verwijst Spanje naar Gerechtshof vanwege stortplaatsen die niet aan de eisen voldoen

09 september 2014

The European Commission (EC) is taking Spain to Court for two (unrelated) breaches of environment legislation. The first concerns poor waste management: despite earlier warnings from the Commission, numerous Spanish landfills are still operating in breach of EU landfill legislation.
Under the Landfill Directive, operations at landfill sites that were in operation in 2001 should have ceased by 16 July 2009 unless they complied with EU standards. According to the latest information available to the Commission, 28 non-compliant landfill sites in Spain have still not been closed, and 3 others still need to be brought up to the standards required (Persbericht EC, 10 juli 2014).
