Two 3.2 m3 containers were set on fire last night on the main street in Gorce Petrov neighborhood.
In the same period, six 1.1m3 plastic containers were burned in the Settlement Novo Lisice. PE Communal hygiene-Skopje also faced this incident at past weekend in Skopje suburb Radishani, where three 1.1 m3 containers and a special bell-shaped container intended for glass selection were burned.
"The burnt containers are completely destroyed and unusable. We already had a case of a burning new container on Roosevelt Street, and last night burned two more and six of the old waste disposal containers. In addition to the significant financial damage inflicted on PE Communal hygiene-Skopje, these incidents cause major problems in the disposal, collection and transportation of communal waste. We call for the vandalism and destruction of containers to stop, so that Enterprise teams can carry out their duties on time in the field. "- said the director of PE Communal hygiene-Skopje, Abdusamed Shabani.
All cases of fire of the waste containers have been reported to the competent authorities and appropriate measures will be taken to identify and sanction the offenders.
