A fire at a landfill site in Zielona Gora, Poland has drawn attention to the country's waste management policies and claims of Illegal Waste importation from Germany. Inadequate storage and treatment, along with illegal waste shipments, have become significant problems in Poland. The Polish Ministry of Climate has filed a complaint with the European Commission regarding 35,000 tons of illegal waste shipments from Germany. Germany claims that returning illegal shipments is the responsibility of the federal states but remains committed to improving prevention. There are over 400 illegal landfills in Poland, with 140 containing hazardous waste. The Polish government is considering providing more support for waste disposal.
