The city of Tallinn and Tallinna Prügila (dumping ground – edit) signed a contract in 2000, agreeing that the city will take its waste there for the next 60 years. The city may direct waste elsewhere only if there’s another new dumping ground in the area. If the city breaks the contract then Prügila may terminate it and claim compensation of EEK 100 mln.
“It’s currently too soon to sell how that situation will be solved. Lawyers and specialists are analyzing the question,” Deniss Boroditš, the vice Mayor of Tallinn said.
Ando Leppiman, the head of Eesti Energia’s renewable energy company said that if Eesti Energia should have problems with getting the waste, then the energy company may pay compensation to Tallinna Prügila.
