EC inspectors say Greece facing fines over landfills

Visiting European Commission inspectors said on Wednesday that Greece faces fines from Brussels for failing to close down 396 illegal landfills across the country despite a series of warnings.

The head of the ECs task force in Athens, Georgette Lalis, noted that Greece had received European Union subsidies to finance the closure of the illegal landfills and the creation of new waste processing plants.

At a meeting of municipal officials from the region of western Macedonia in Thessaloniki, which was attended by EC task force chief Horst Reichenbach, Lalis noted that European officials are beginning to run out of patience and pressed for action at the local level to close the remaining illegal landfills.
