Larnaca municipality is to take part in a pilot programme to identify illegal dumping sites through artificial intelligence and satellite imagery.

A conference was held by director of the satellite imagery company Periopsis Ltd, Andreas Kamilaris was held at the municipality where officials from Larnaca’s health services attended.

“Many areas in Cyprus face significant environmental risks due to illegal dumping as they accumulate garbage. This initiative will help identify these areas and get them cleaned up,” Kamilaris said.

Meetings will be held until March to develop this programme further.
