Parliamentary question: Illegal shipment of waste between Italy and Tunisia
The contract stated that the recyclable waste would be recovered for recycling and that the remaining
waste would be disposed of in Tunisia. The border authorities did not find materials ready for
recycling, but instead found mixed municipal waste.
Judicial investigations were launched in both Tunisia and Italy, resulting in the detention of Tunisia’s
Minister of the Environment and the Campania Region called for the repatriation of the containers.
Since then, SRA has filed several appeals to regional tribunals blocking the bank guarantees to be
used for the repatriation of the shipment.
