Mounds of refuse have built up across the Campania region and residents have clashed with police, blocking roads and setting fire to the rubbish.

residents don't trust the dumps, don't want the dumps because of the illegal materials going into them and the health hazards....incineration has been used by other cities and shut down because of the dioxins (and other toxics) released .... THE ONLY ANSWER IS RECYCLING. RECYCLE RECYCLE RECYCLE.


"...Commission spokeswoman Barbara Helfferich told the BBC News website that she believed the people of Naples supported the Commission's approach.

She said EU funds had been allocated for the building of an incinerator but the authorities were not moving ahead fast enough.
Ms Helfferich said there was no proper management plan for refuse disposal, tackling illegal dumping, and ensuring toxic waste was properly handled"
