Three months after the start of works for the rehabilitation of the landfill in Gjirokastra, the project has been completed ensuring compliance with environmental standards and conditions in waste treatment. Present at the inauguration of this landfill over thirty years in Gjirokastra was the Minister of Tourism and Environment Mirela Kumbaro, accompanied by German Ambassador Peter Zingraf, Mayor Flamur Golemi and representatives of GIZ Albania.

"For 30 years it had turned into a terrible wound which could not have anything to do with Gjirokastra alone. No matter how much we improve the whole process of waste collection in the city or in the villages and continue with the work that has started throughout Albania within the National Cleaning Plan where every day is cleaned and does not end, because we are facing decades of mismanagement, comes a moment that even the end point requires its own sanitary conditions. This is the end of all that we collect. "It is a very successful cooperation of the Ministry of Tourism and Environment with the German Embassy and GIZ", said Kumbaro.

Kumbaro also announced intentions to move towards the model of waste separation at source and recycling, as the only way to reduce the volume of waste.

“Asnjë investim nuk është i mjaftueshëm, por ato që kanë vlerë janë modelet. Si modeli i kompostimit, për trajtimin e mbetjeve të gjelbra, ashtu si ricklimi që sjell edhe të ardhura për bashkinë, e deri te pikat fundore me standarde. Ky është një shpëtim i madh për Gjirokastrën dhe një punë shumë e mirë. Tani kemi një tjetër element, shoqëria, qytetarët që duhet të na ndihmojnë shumë në mënyrën se si i mbledhin mbetjet. Sfida do të jetë ndarja në burim dhe riciklimi”, tha ndër të tjera Kumbaro.

Work on the rehabilitation of the Gërhot landfill began in March, with the aim of establishing a systematic base and the necessary space for waste disposal. Sludge collection pipes ensure its collection and treatment by natural methods. This reduces pollution in the surface and groundwater around the landfill, avoids the release of greenhouse gases, the spread of bags and other packaging in the surrounding areas.
