People living around a waste treatment complex in Hanoi such as Hong Ky and Nam Son communes had prevented garbage trucks from entering the Soc Son Waste Treatment Complex, causing rubbish to remain uncollected and pile up in many district from July 13 because they said Hanoi and Son Son Commune authorities had been slow to compensate those bearing environmental impacts from the complex, who live close to it and have not been relocated.
According to a representative of People’s Committee in Soc Son Commune, residents in the waste treatment complex are angry because horrific smell from the treatment complex and the complex’s treatment of trash leakage badly affect their living.
