Huge rubbish islands form on Bosnia's Drina River

Some 10,000 cubic meters of waste are estimated to have amassed in recent days in the Drina River behind the trash barrier near Visegrad, Furtula said.The same amount was pulled out of the river in recent years, a task that on average takes up to six months.Each year, the waste ends up at the municipal landfill site in Visegrad which, according to Furtula, does not have sufficient capacity to handle the city’s waste.AP
