Welcome to a landfill!

On the 9th and 10th of October 2019 a study tour within the MineLife project, which is financed through funds from the INTERREG programme, took place. This time miners from Poland and Germany met on the grounds of the former opencast mining site Wetro in Puschwitz. The object is currently used as a landfill. The participants learned, amongst other topics, about its technical structure, conflict management in the landfill and the problems coming with a transition from mining laws to landfill laws. They also received a tour of the landfill. The lectures and the visit were very interesting for the participants. At the end of the event a vivid discussion regarding these topics took place.

Topic: Institutional capacities
Program: Saxony-Poland
