Question for written answer P-004013-18
to the Commission
Rule 130

 Subject:  Removal, transport and disposal of toxic waste on the site of the former company C&C (Padua, Italy) and Commission's answer to the petition filed
 Answer in writing 

In 2013 the ‘Comitato Popolare SOS C&C’ association filed a petition with Parliament regarding the illegal storage of 52 000 tonnes of toxic waste on the site of the former company C&C in Pernumia (Padua).

The association has explained the facts behind the petition to the Commission on a number of occasions, the latest being 29 November 2016, when recent photographs documenting the waste were also provided.

On 3 April 2018 the sole central purchasing body responsible cancelled(1) all documents relating to the procurement of services to remove, transport and dispose of special category waste on C&C’s site in Pernumia. This followed the entry into force of Regulation 2017/997/EU under which all the lots are now defined as hazardous waste. A new call for tenders was published on 4 June 2018, with a budget of EUR 1 million, which is EUR 500 000 less than the amount the Veneto regional authorities had already set aside and earmarked for this work.

With regard to the petition, in its reply of 27 April 2018 the Commission confirmed its previous assessment(2) that the measures taken by the Italian authorities to ensure clean-up of the site were ‘appropriate’, even though work to decontaminate the land had not yet been carried out.

In light of the above, could the Commission say whether, and on what basis, it considers that the measures taken by the Italian authorities are appropriate for ensuring the site is cleaned up?
