Poland complains to European Union about German waste brought and dumped in unauthorized landfills

Poland has made a complaint against Germany to the European Commission over tons of German waste, some of it allegedly toxic, brought and stored in unauthorized landfills across Poland, officials said Wednesday. Poland’s minister for climate and environment, Anna Moskwa, said the waste is being brought illegally and the complaint is a step toward taking Germany to the European Court of Justice. Moskwa said the German government and local authorities failed to respond to Poland’s requests for the waste to be removed from its territory.

        The European Commission should thoroughly investigate the allegations and take appropriate actions to ensure that waste disposal practices comply with EU regulations.
