Reports that a solid waste depot is in the planning stage have been denied by the Ministry of the Interior.
The chairman of the Green Peace Movement Dogan Sahir and the Rector of Kyrenia American University (GAU) had told a press conference that the site of the solid waste plant would be in a forest area between Kyrenia and St. Hilarion Castle. A variety of organisations had expressed their reactions on the subject.
In response, the Ministry of the Interior has said that there was a project being conducted by YAGA (Investment Development Agency in collaboration with that ministry and the Ministry for the Environment which focuses on solid waste management.
The ministry added that some media organisation had mislead the public on the issue.
