La recolección de residuos es, de hecho, la forma más efectiva de prevenir la contaminación.

Giuseppe Ungherese afferma: “L’Italia sembra preferire una finta transizione ecologica.

Se quanto stabilito dal parlamento verrà confermato dal Governo Draghi e dal ministro Cingolani danneggeremo due volte il Paese: il nostro sistema industriale resterà ancorato a logiche che appartengono al passato e fatalmente subiremo una procedura d’infrazione, con danni economici a carico della collettività” External link
