Natura 2000 site a vast wasteland of rubbish

THE Green Party yesterday highlighted the transformation of a Natura 2000 protected site into a vast wasteland of rubbish.

The Greens visited an area between the communities of Denia and Kokkinotrimithia, accompanied by Denia council leader Christakis Panayiotou.

“We discovered with sadness that the area has been transformed into a vast rubbish dump,” said a Greens statement, adding that a lot of the waste dumped evidently comes from nearby farm units. Rubble from demolition sites was also found, along with household rubbish and plastics.

The area is known for its lush herbs and vegetation and panoramic views of the plains of western Mesaoria.

The Greens called on the relevant authorities to clean the area of rubbish, threatening otherwise to report the waste dump in a protected area to the EU.
