Press: Public dumps to close under ministry plan

All public rubbish dumps in the Czech Republic should be closed by the year 2025, under a plan being prepared by the Ministry of the Environment, Mladá fronta Dnes reported on Tuesday. The plan envisages much greater use of incinerators by local authorities, the newspaper said. The cost of building them is likely to lead to a marked increase in the charges that individuals and companies currently pay to have their rubbish removed.
