Tallinn Approves Municipal Landfill Plan, Opens Food Store ({{commentsTotal}})


Tallinn City Government decided to move ahead with a plan to purchase the remaining shares of Tallinn Landfill from Veolia for 1.6 million euros.

Subject to approval from the Competition Authority, Tallinn will increase its share from 35 to 100 percent with Mayor Edgar Savisaar saying it will give a boost to the recycling industry.

In separate news, the city today opened a municipal store in the Lasnamäe district. The shop will sell 34 basic products and according to Deputy Mayor Arvo Sarapuu, will not compete with larger supermarkets.

Balloons for the Center Party, which has a majority in Tallinn City Council, balloons were present at the opening, alongside IRL Tallinn councilmen, who called the whole project "absurd."

Savisaar, who was present at the opening, bought fresh cucumber at 1.06 euros per kilo and radishes at 4.24 euros per kilo.
