People in the world. Please share this information, so that at some point it reaches European Commission or other European institution upon which the Republic of Latvia is dependent as a member state of EU.
There is really a lot of trash burning in Latvia. Mostly it is plastic. Individuals burn in their yards. Enterprises burn in their areas and facilities. Government is not acting enough. Only clean PET and HDPE bottles are accepted as recyclable plastic. There is no deposit system for accepting used bottles in exchange for coins. There is no additional tax for plastic packaged goods. There is not enough action to collect plastic in the environment. Is there no European Regulation that obliges member states to reduce landfill and emissions?
I propose that EU member states that do not have a well operating waste management and recycling system receive less emission quotes and are forbidden to sell their emission quotes.
