Following complaints made to the Environmental Protection Department affiliated to the Ministry of Tourism and Environment, the waste dumped on empty land within the borders of Gönyeli Municipality were examined on-site by the Department staff and the necessary actions were taken and the waste was removed.
As a result of the attempts made in this context, 10 truck loads were taken from the waste area and taken to the Güngör Regular Storage Facility for disposal.
