ZAGREB, May 5, 2019 – A protest rally was held in Sisak on Saturday where a few hundred demonstrators gathered to raise public awareness of the existing and potential environmental problems arising from the growing number of businesses engaged in the management of both hazardous and non-hazardous waste.
Protest leaders said that they were particularly concerned at the arrival of the companies of Rijekatank and Remondis which, they said, were expelled from the towns of Rijeka and Jastrebarsko.
Rijekatank’s core business is industrial cleaning and waste management.
The protesters claim that this company would likely process 30,000 tonnes of non-hazardous and 10,000 tonnes of hazardous waste in Sisak.
Officials of the opposition Živi Zid party, who were on the campaign trail for the European Parliament elections, today joined the protest rally in Sisak to express their support to the demonstrators.
