Over 100 tons of PCB stored at Sundahöfn harbor

Since Iceland has no means to dispose toxic waste, more than 100 tons of PCB-polluted soil is being stored in sacks in an enclosed area of Sundahöfn harbor, in eastern Reykjavík, Fréttabladid reports. According to Lúdvík Gústafsson, head of pollution prevention for the City of Reykjavík, it is essential for Icelandic authorities to address this issue immediately and designate an area for such disposal, as many Icelandic businesses do not have the financial capacity to transport toxic waste for disposal overseas.
