Law enforcement officers, government representatives and ecologists were not allowed to enter the enterprise

In Zaporizhzhia in the industrial zone of the Shevchenkiv district, an entrepreneur installed an artisanal furnace in which he melts batteries

Such activities produce black smoke with a very unpleasant smell, reports acting mayor of Zaporizhzhia Anatoly Kurtev in Telegram.

He said that the entrepreneur did not provide city ​​ecologists, representatives of the district administration, the police and the prosecutor's office neither access to their territory nor information about the tenant of the industrial site.

"Zaporizhia, remember your "smelly heroes" – Bazova Street 4, on which the territory of ANKOMTECH LLC is located," Kurtev wrote.

He added that the violation was discovered thanks to the appeal of concerned citizens to the "hotline" of the Zaporizhzhia 15-80 contact center.

"The act of non-admission has already been drawn up and will be handed over to the law enforcement officers," the official said.

Remind, in Zaporizhzhia, Shevchenkivsky district, an entrepreneur has resumed activity with burning circuit boards, plastic and rubber in an artisanal furnace, which is causing thick black smoke to rise into the air. Local residents complained of a strong stench in the air.

As EcoPolitics previously reported, in the suburbs of Cherkassy, ​​in the industrial zone, a tire recycling enterprise operated for more than 2 years, where tires were simply burned.
