"The ground is smouldering with unnatural fumes", explains Enzo Tosti, a local activist. As the fumes rise, lethal contamination spreads into the local farms and the aquifers surrounding Naples. The effect of the Mafia waste disposal has been devastating as these toxins have now found their way into the food chain, causing "carcinogenic, mutagenic damage" and an upsurge in child cancer rates. Carmine Schiavone, the former Mafia boss in charge of disposing the toxic waste, has a price on his head. But he has now had a turn of conscience. Exposing that the waste near Naples was dumped under the "knowledge of senior officials", Schiavone also indicates that Naples isn't the only place in Italy facing this toxic time bomb.

Women tossing small bag onto large pile of garbage 17. Rubbish burning at side of road STORYLINE: A rubbish emergency has left tons of garbage laying along the streets in cities around Naples as waste collection was interrupted days ago due to a problem with the main dump in the area. The dump is saturated beyond limits and cannot contain any more waste unless action is taken to eliminate or intervene with recycling procedures. Residents and tourists in towns like the one seen here, Ercolano, 20 kilometres (12 miles) south of Naples, are beginning to suffer from the build-up. Piles of rubbish in town squares - and outside flats and shops are posing a threat to residents' health, the environment and tourism. People in southern Italy began burning garbage on Wednesday night to help eliminate the growing quantities. More than one thousand wheelie-bins and trash containers were set on fire, causing hundreds of thousands Euros worth of damage. Local authorities are searching for solutions to the crisis, mostly by looking for alternative dumps and directing waste to other areas. There have been talks about transporting garbage to Germany as a possible solution. The crisis is not new in the Naples region. Dumps in the Naples region are often full, and residents frequently organise protests to block the roads to stop waste trucks from reaching the dumps. The problem is exacerbated by the involvement of the so-called "eco-mafia", the organised trafficking of tens of millions of garbage a year. Italy produces some 80 (m) million tons of waste a year, ordinary and toxic. Allegedly some 35 (m) million tons are handled by criminal organisations which deal with waste collection, elimination and recycling.

In 2009 the board of supervisors passed an ordinance requiring all residents and business to recycle and compost their waste, making it the first American city to make composting mandatory. Its goal is to achieve zero waste by 2020, and it has diverted 80% of its waste from landfills so far. Now the city is getting attention from all around the world. Government officials from China, Italy, France, Denmark, India and many other countries have visited San Francisco's state of the art recycling and composting facilities in hopes of learning how to replicate its success.

Land of Waste. Albania is slowly sinking under the weight of Europe's waste. In the "dustbin of Europe", countries such as France, Austria, Serbia, Slovenia, Italy, and Russia dump their scrap in vast quantities. Yet Albania's infrastructure is insufficient for dealing with this often toxic waste.

By Wikipedia: "The triangle of death (Italian: Triangolo della morte) is an area in the Italian province of Campania comprising the municipalities of Acerra, Nola and Marigliano. The region has recently experienced increasing deaths caused by cancer and other diseases that exceeds the Italian national average. The rise in cancer-related mortality is thought to be mainly caused by pollution from illegal waste disposal by the Camorra criminal organization." Carmine schiavone, a boss of camorra

The farmlands around Naples - authorities say - are contaminated from the camorra's multibillion-dollar racket in disposing toxic waste, mainly from industries in the wealthy north that ask no questions about where the garbage goes as long as it's taken off their hands, for a fraction of the cost of legal disposal. The poisoning is triggering widespread fear and outrage in Naples province, and tens of thousands of people marched through the city's streets last month demanding to know whether they have been eating tainted vegetables for years. On Domenico Della Corte's farm in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius, police swooped down one recent day and planted a warning sign in his broccoli fields, prohibiting any one from harvesting or even setting foot on the plot. Dozens of other fields in the area were seized in the same way. Farmers scoffed at the idea their vegetables, a key part of the much-touted healthy Mediterranean diet, would be bad to eat. "I eat those cauliflowers myself, I give them to my children, to my little nephews," Domenico Della Corte said. "Would you eat something poisoned? We're not stupid," he said. But many are concerned over the effects the toxic waste disposal may have on the environment and health. Decades of toxic waste dumping by the camorra crime syndicate that dominates the Naples area poisoned wells, authorities have found in recent months, tainting the water that irrigates crops with high levels of lead, arsenic and the industrial solvent tetrachloride. In an interview with The Associated Press, the head of the Naples environmental police force, General Sergio Costa, rattled off a list of substances in higher than permissible levels contaminating 13 irrigation wells on farmlands: arsenic, cadmium, tin, beryllium and other metals; tetrachloride and toluene among other chemicals used as industrial solvents. Specific levels were not provided as tests were ongoing, but the amounts are reaching dangerous levels, according to Costa. Officials estimate that waste seepage from one of the more notorious sites, a hill-like dump in the nearby farm town of Giugliano, a short drive away, will keep poisoning the water for half a century. A top Camorra boss, Francesco Bidognetti, was convicted last month of poisoning the water table in the town of Gugliano with toxic waste and received a 20-year sentence. It was by far the stiffest punishment yet for waste dumping and a strong sign that the state is cracking down on the lucrative racket. Much of the waste the camorra has trafficked has come from factories, processing plants and hospitals, mainly trucked down from in Italy's industrial north to the mobsters' power base near Naples and Caserta. Some of the waste was buried under a soccer field in Casal di Principe, the stronghold of the Casalesi crime clan that dominates the illicit business, along with a few other families. Naples-based anti-Mafia Prosecutor Giovanni Conzo said in an interview that waste was also buried under a water-skiing pool in the town of Castel Volturno, near the sea. "The camorra (Campania-based international organised crime syndicate), the mafia (Sicily-based international organised crime syndicate) and the 'ndrangheta (Calabria-based international organised crime syndicate) will not end until there is connivance with politics and with the business community and as long as there are entrepreneurs ready to take money coming from the camorra ," Conzo said. According to a nationwide environmentalist group, Legambiente, Camorra mobsters since 1991 have systematically dumped, burned or buried nearly 10 million tons of waste, almost all of it coming from factories that either don't seek to know where the waste ends up or are complicit in the crimes.

Italy's largest oil company stands accused of polluting the waters off the Sicilian town of Gela by allegedly dumping large quantities of toxic waste under the sea. Environmental pollution charges were brought against five managers at Eni last month. Locals and experts believe toxic waste from the company's refinery at Gela has caused high rates of birth defects in the area. Mortality rates from cancer are also higher than elsewhere in Sicily, according to a report by Sentieri Project, a venture funded by the Italian Ministry of Health.
