Palermo, a mountain of waste in the middle of the cycle path

We are in Palermo, in via Messina Marine, and for the past two months anyone wishing to ride a bicycle on the cycle path in the area should, at some point, do the slalom on a real mountain of waste. Which is impossible, because the heaps of garbage are really too many. The images speak for themselves.

The citizens’ complaint has arrived, who for weeks have been urging the municipal administration and the Rap to deal with the situation, but apart from a few “we will act as soon as possible”, nothing has been done.

After all, the waste situation in Palermo is there for all to see, with the company that has been dealing with collection in crisis since time immemorial, and the situation does not seem to improve.

So much so that the proposal came to block what seemed, to most people, a folly, that is to increase the Tari even to the weakest income bracket.

“The proposal of the Offices of the Municipality of Palermo to cancel the facilities and exemptions from the tax on waste (Tari) for the most fragile citizens is absolutely inadmissible. We invite the political groups present in the Sala delle Tombidi not to limit themselves to making propaganda press releases, with the purpose of electoral campaigns. We of the 5 Star Movement propose a concrete act towards the citizens of Palermo: tomorrow we ask together for the immediate withdrawal and the vote in the City Council of the proposed resolution that aims to ‘eliminate the article 11 of the Tari ‘Regulation to proceed to reject it by rejecting it in the Chamber “. The councilors of the 5 Star Movement, Viviana Lo Monaco, Antonino Randazzo and Concetta Amella say so. For the three pentastellated exponents, “a few minutes will be enough – they write in a note – to give concreteness and effectiveness to the many words”.
