By John

The Carabinieri of the Cataforio station, as part of targeted services aimed at combating environmental crimes, have reported 2 people, aged between 31 and 56, caught while they were illegally transporting on board a truck a large quantity of waste and inert material which they had previously taken, without any authorization, from a construction site in the town. The intervention of the military made it possible to interrupt the criminal plan which would have culminated, most likely with the subsequent dumping of waste collected in green areas, public or private, thus increasing the phenomenon of environmental pollution.

At the end of the activity carried out, the Carabinieri reported the two men to the judicial authorities for the crimes of waste collection and disposal without the required authorization. The truck used and the materials collected were seized.
The Carabinieri's activity to combat environmental crimes is constant and daily. In fact, there are many services put in place in order to combat all forms of pollution with targeted and selective actions, aimed at repressing illegal activities and the illicit disposal of waste, for the defense of citizens' health and the protection of territories.
