Camaiore Municipal Police using cameras and bourgeois officers has raised almost double the fines of last year of Cesare Bonifazi by JuneCAMAIORE. What better place to throw trash if not in baskets along the streets or parks? The police officers had a lot of work to do in these months. It was rain of fines in Camaiore, that is to say, for those who abandoned bags, but also washing machines, televisions and mattresses directly in the street or outside the bins. Only in 2017, it exceeded 400. More than the 2016 when the verbals were 281. These are the numbers announced by Camaiore that through 12 cameras (plus a mobile camera) , in addition to the bourgeois, have tried to counter the continuing growth of environment violations throughout the city. And the videos are clear. In 2016, since Commander Claudio Barsuglia’s entry into service, 281 verbals were issued, of which 240 were for private and 41 for business for which the penalty was doubled. In 2017, thanks to the implementation of the technology facility, in the first six months of the year, there were 400 verbals, of which about 10% were in business. The checks are made using 12 cameras that are installed in rotating ecological islands, mounted on a municipal vehicle, and with agents in uniform or even in bourgeois. It should be remembered that sanctions for the abandonment of waste range from € 100 to € 310 according to the infringement committed, and that double in case the offense is committed by a commercial, craft or agricultural business.
A problem that involved not only the capital but also the coastal area where there is the door-to-door trash differencial service.
The problem, according to the mayor, is that on the one hand the citizens struggle to adapt to the new system, on the other hand some gaps in the service would push citizens not to comply with the rules imposed by the collection service. “We are looking at all the reports that people tells to us to analyze the current state of the waste collection service so that we can understand where there are problems to resolve. We ask citizens to continue actively collaborating through their warning, which is the first step in order to be able to demand more careful and punctual management of the service, “said the researcher Sara Pescaglini.
