Stefano Vignaroli aggiunto: “Con questa inchiesta – (\*) – la Commissione ha voluto tracciare un quadro della situazione del ciclo dei rifiuti collegata all’emergenza COVID-19. Sul fronte dell’illegalità ambientale, sono preoccupato per le molte aziende in situazione di difficoltà e per questo più permeabili a interessi illeciti. Proprio per non alimentare rischi di gestioni dei rifiuti illegali o irregolari, la Commissione raccomanda fortemente di superare i numerosi provvedimenti derogatori messi in campo a livello statale e regionale: c’è già un percorso avviato in questo senso a livello parlamentare” External link

Alvaro Ancisi conclude: “L’incompatibilità tra le attività di bonifica della valle e le legittime sue frequentazioni si manifesta nei giorni e nelle ore in cui si svolgono i lavori, tra lunedì e venerdì, dal primo mattino ad una certa ora del pomeriggio. Di qui la proposta di effettuare un correttivo dell’ordinanza in questione affinché, nei giorni e nelle ore in cui i lavori non sono svolti, possano accedere alla valle: i pescatori regolari per svolgere la propria attività nei termini consentiti; i capannisti regolari per raggiungere i loro manufatti anche su battello; le persone residenti o alloggiate nei lidi nord per visitare questi luoghi, previa autocertificazione del loro stato, onde apprezzare la meraviglia di un ecosistema unico. Si chiede pertanto al sindaco – (\*) – se conviene di indirizzare i servizi competenti in materia verso l’accoglimento sostanziale di tali proposte” External link
