In recent days, in Reggio Calabria – Arghillà, the Carabinieri have identified several vehicles that are no longer functional, abandoned, devoid of any mechanical component, set on fire and lacking any identifying element as it was removed or abraded.
In all, 20 car carcasses, constituting special waste, were found on public land and precisely inside the square called “Italio Calabrò” in Modenelle in the Arghillà district in the northern outskirts of Reggio Calabria, which has become a real ” open landfill ”for which the military proceeded to immediately remove it and transfer it to an authorized company for disposal.
Investigations are continuing in order to trace the owners of the vehicles, responsible for the abandonment and illicit management of special waste.
Abandoned vehicles cause high environmental pollution due to the presence of metals, rubbers, plastics, tires, batteries, glasses, engine greases, exhausted oils, fuels and lubricants which, exposed over time to atmospheric agents, pour into the surrounding environment. they come out and penetrate into the ground.
In the case of end-of-life vehicles, the owners are obliged to arrange for scrapping by giving the vehicle to an authorized collection center, directly or through an authorized person, and to cancel the vehicle from the Pra.
Only last July, the carabinieri had carried out a similar activity, placing another site under seizure, located in the same area, in via Villaggio Arghillà Nord, as it was used for uncontrolled waste storage activities, among which there were also carcasses of cars abandoned.
The attention of the Arma is always high for environmental crimes, especially that of abandonment and illicit trade in hazardous waste, which constitute one of the greatest threats not only for ecosystems and protected species but also for our economy and our society. .
