Landfill site Flörsheim-Wicker: A lunar landscape, nobody wants that

the pictures can look like a garbage dump, as the tourism Association of wool with your advertise. Almost idyllic in the green, gently rolling hills nestled in the countryside. The landfill in Flörsheim-Wicker have once can look so nice. At least according to the ideas of the operator company. 20 more years, according to the Plan, wanted Deposit mountains the people responsible actually, more slag and rubble on the already existing Garbage. In two decades of the slag mountain should be landscaped. For the Computer simulations of the finished landfill is a view angle is selected, which makes the pile much smaller. You will only be shown in the Background of rows of vines or fields.

This should be in the landscape become less visible and farther from residential areas than those in Wicker. Only existing landfill site in the is still space. Hardly realistic that a brand new storage facility is set up.
