All the municipalities of the province of Nuoro and Ogliastra are experiencing absolute discomfort with regard to the disposal of organic waste. In fact, since last Saturday, all the treatment services of the platform, paid for by Tossilo Tecnoservice Spa, have ceased their activity, also closing the composting line, the only section of the entire plant still in operation.

The system would be blocked by the failure of the industrial consortium to renew the sureties necessary to renew the Integrated Environmental Authorization, which the Province of Nuoro issues for the operation of the plants. This is creating severe inconvenience to the municipal suppliers, who in the absence of indications from the Region, which governs the planning tool, are forced to knock on the plants in half of Sardinia, so that the organic fraction of the waste, rejected by Tossilo, is received.

Behind, however, there is a war between the Industrial Consortium, (in liquidation since 2008) and Tossilo Tecnoservice Spa. "We have represented this sad and tangled affair to the regional councilor for industry for several months now - says the councilor to the environment Andrea Rubattu - but so far there has been a deadly and embarrassing silence, even on the part of the regional councilor for the environment. As far as we are concerned, we do not want to participate in this sad dispute between Tossilo Tecnoservice Spa and the Industrial Consortium ".

Even the Zero Waste Sardegna association is part of this story with a long document, with an unequivocal title: "Tossilo: all the knots come to a head". Then he adds: "It is clear that this is not just the failure to renew the surety and that, behind the conflict between the liquidator of the Macomer industrial consortium and the president of Tossilo Tecnoservice, there are much wider and more worrying issues".
