Defective Machinery Transhipped Uprising Popular Private Plants abandoned for weeks on maintenance and at least a thousand tons of garbage on the road. The summer crisis of the waste is not dampened at Rome . A difficulty that the opposition is trying to ride to overthrow Campidoglio and Mayor Virginia Raggi . Which continues to react with the appeal to the "Waste War". The fact is that the first citizen for almost 5 months is also environmental commissioner, and despite the decision to appoint the activist and her colleague Laura Fiorini Councilwoman green the political vacuum remains because it will not have the delegation to waste. Role that the Ray wants to separate the delegation to waste. Which then remains separate and still in their hands, is directed against the institutional attacks . The last came just from the Lazio region and evoked the health emergency that alerted the directors of Asl capitoline "to the possible effects of exposures related to on public health Accumulation of municipal solid waste "A situation that also embarrassed the Minister of the Environment Sergio Costa who was forced to reopen the waste control room on 9 July this year.

THE CRISIS OF AMA – The big criticism at this time is due to the collection that does not work.What's going on? Let's start first with the deep crisis the of Ama Spa of the Roman town garbage company, was traversed The company stopped between 55 and 60% of the collection vehicles in the workshop, some with very complex Deficiencies that had to be addressed even for the average age of the fleet over 10 years (peaked at 10 years) 13-14). Union sources indicate an increase in June disturbances in so-called "parent machines", where smaller vehicles unload and deliver Waste to the transfer centers, each of these larger vehicles stopping at least holding at least a dozen rolls ge which leads to slowdowns in entire districts. This would have meant that the employment rate of operators would have fallen below 70%. In recent days there has also been a rumor about a possible "white strike" by employees which was actually contested by several parties. The slowdown of repairs would be due mainly to the economic difficulties of companies who had two unapproved households with debts of more than € 1.2 billion and ] Stormy Reports with suppliers of Spare Parts . And the more rubbish accumulates on the street, the more complex the collection becomes, the more the citizens will injure the waste collection.
THE PROBLEM OF PLANTS – As you know, Rome also has a plant problem. This summer has intensified due to the decision of private operators to perform extraordinary maintenance on their facilities . Indeed, after the fire of December 11, 2018 at tmb Salario the only Ama plant operated for undifferentiated is the tmb of Rocca Cencia . While the prosecution investigated arson, the municipality sought cover and increased the transmission in Abruzzo in some municipalities of Lazio and in the factories of Colari- Group of Manlio Cerroni. In particular, in Malagrotta the two today managed by the Justice Administrator Luigi Palumbo – despite the acquittal of the colonel – since mid-May. only 750 of the 1,250 tonnes per day for which they are approved. Maintenance began on May and lasts at least until October . In such a context, waste must be removed from Rome and transhipment points organized within the city. Collection points that the citizens do not want: Currently, only the Ponte Malnome works during both Saxa Rubra and in the territory where the tmb Salario The citizens took to the streets, supported by the opposition, to avoid the use of these places.
THE POLITICAL AND TECHNICAL VACUUM – Just in time for the beginning of winter and early summer, the city records peak waste production, which returns after the Christmas holidays and during the summer months. It can be assumed that as every year from the middle of July – when the Romans go on vacation – the crisis will return. But the point is different. As said, on February 8 Rome is without a city council for environment . Despite the many names placed next to each other to collect the interim time of the mayor, Raggi has only been able to appoint Fiorini as assessor for Green . It is obvious that the already cumbersome work of the first citizen does not permit a better administration of one of the heavier departments. But that's not all. Although their names had been known for months, members of the new board of Ama did not take office until June 20, when the old members were expelled on February 18. The new president, Luisa Melara is a lawyer, the Paolo Longoni accountant and none of them has ever dealt with waste. Only the third director, Massimo Ranieri has industry experience, however, took part-time employment as he will continue to manage the waste disposal of Lanciano .
