The candidate for Mayor of Prishtina, Uran Ismaili said that within the first year of governing the regulation of infrastructure for waste management, their illegal landfills, will be a priority for a Green Prishtina.
Ismaili made these comments from the location of the ugly Illegal Waste Landfill which was created in the absence of a suitable municipal infrastructure for their collection.
On this occasion, Ismaili said that he will be committed to, among other things, to regulate and organize the collection of waste generated by all businesses in Pristina, build a center for the treatment of bulky waste and install cameras in all areas of the capital where illegal waste is currently collected.
Read his full speech:
Thank you for your participation here.
We are today in a location in Prishtina, where behind me here is an ugly dump of illegal waste which has been created in the absence of a suitable municipal infrastructure for their collection.
This landfill, which unfortunately is not the only one in Prishtina, aggravates and endangers the lives of the citizens of Prishtina every day, throughout the year.
In addition to environmental pollution, these landfills also make a large collection of stray dogs, which are a daily danger of ours.
Cleanliness and hygiene, or lack thereof, reflect the culture of the city and the way of life of the Prishtina people. I strongly believe that municipal leadership should play a leading role in securing it.
Therefore, it has been very important for me that in the plan for Prishtina the cleaning of the city within the first year of government and the adjustment of the infrastructure is a priority for a Green Prishtina.
What are we going to do?
• We will regulate and organize the collection of waste generated by all businesses in Prishtina.
• We will install cameras in all areas of the capital where illegal waste is currently collected.
• We will approve the regulation which prevents builders from being flagged for dumping waste without a place – Obtaining a construction permit in the Municipality of Prishtina.
• We also thought about waste from construction material. We will build the center for the treatment of construction waste and demolition, in areas suitable for citizens and accessible to builders.
Therefore, Green Prishtina is the Prishtina of the future – which will no longer tolerate a polluted, dysfunctional city without infrastructure for citizens, businesses and construction companies.
In this vision and plan – Prishtina Unites us all.
