City of Buenos Aires, June 9, 2011
Activists from the environmental group intervened several campaign signs of Mauricio Macri that read “You are welcome”, and put first signs that say, “Trasg, you are welcome.” They reported that there are record levels of waste in the last 4 years and that the recycling policy was destroyed.
As you read the official site of Greenpeace Argentina, “the years 2008, 2009 and 2010 were the worst of the decade they were achieved in record numbers landfill.”
The complaint is that Macri did not comply with the Act 854, “Zero Waste”, approved on 2007.
“In 2008, 1,844,018 tonnes were sent to landfill in 2009 1,847,748 and in 2010 we reached the historical ceiling of 2 million tonnes. During 2010 the City sent the suburbs about 6 thousand tons daily, 14% more than in 2009 and 50% more than it should according to current regulations in the City,” they add.
