ABSTRACT:
Until 30th June 2010, Poland liquidated a total of 180 burial grounds containing about 16.4 thousand Mg of expired pesticides and 97 warehouses containing 0.54 thousand Mg of waste. In the period from 1st January 2011 till 31st December 2013, a total of 28 burial grounds containing about 5.4 thousand Mg of obsolete pesticides were liquidated. Only 4 burial grounds containing about 278.43 Mg wastes remained for liquidation on 31st December 2013. Currently, 3 objects remained for the liquidation. The adopted course of action connected with burial grounds is to increase the involvement of the public administration to remove them in the provinces of Lower Silesia, Opole and Podlasie (finalization of conducted administrative proceedings and enforcement of their provisions).
