Durresi city will be clean from all garbage. Prime Minister Edi Rama promised on Wednesday after the visit in the city's most problematic and unclean area that all the garbage will be treated in Tirana's landfill.
While from the other side, he warned that plastic bags will not be used any more.
"We have taken a commitment to close this cancerous area of the waste field in Durres. It has been so historically, and far from inhabited, but today, Durres has expanded. There is an apocalypse scene. By the fall of next year we will close it, in order to return it to a park. The remains of Durres will be treated at the Tirana's landfill. There is another element regarding the plastic bags, which should disappear from circulation," said Rama.
According to him, Albania will be the first Balkan country to ban plastic bags at all.
