CLOSE TO €600,000 in excess charges will be returned to local authorities in Paphos by the operators of the sanitary landfill in Marathounda, Yeroskipou Mayor Michalis Pavlides said on Saturday.
Pavlides, also the vice chairman of the landfill’s board, said €580,000 will be returned immediately to various local authorities in Paphos served by the landfill.
The money represents overcharges from previous years. It follows a renegotiation of the terms with the contractors who operate the unit.
Pavlides said that apart from the money, local authorities would also have reduced monthly rates.
The current contractor’s agreement expires in July and a new tender will be announced, the mayor said.
