Poisoned land

In Lviv region 145 storehouses contain about 800 tons of unsuitable for usage pesticides.

This poisonous heritage consists of prohibited and unsuitable for usage pesticides which are still lying about in abandoned storehouses in places where our children play and grains for our bread grow. In order to learn when, how and for what money Lviv region will be relieved from this poison, the project “Utilization of toxic pesticides on the territory of Lviv oblast in the basins of transboundary rivers Syan and Western Buh” was for one day joined by “Ratusha” newspaper.


The Project Tender Committee after consideration of all given proposals of participants of the procedure of purchase of services on canning and disposal of the unfit pesticides defined proposals which are mostly meeting the requirements and terms of project implementation.

Inventory of store-houses with unfit pesticides on territory of the Lviv oblast in the Transboundary Basin of the River San and Western Bug continues

Due to the lack of awareness of citizens on danger of direct or indirect contact with pesticides we faced many cases of thefts of parts of store-houses : parts of the roofs, brick and concrete elements that prevent open access to it and this results in worsening of storage conditions of pesticides, and opens access to them.

Such situation happened in Yavorivskuy district, village Krakivetc', where near 1,4 tons of unfit pesticides are stored.
