ATHENS – Greece’s repeated failures to obey European waste management laws is getting costly after a fine of 22 million euros – growing every day – was imposed.

The Advocate General at the European Court of Justice, Juliane Kokott, ordered that Greece must pay also 54,450 euros for every day that it fails to shut down the remaining 60-70 illegal landfills which continue to operate in the country.

A 2005 ECJ ruling had given Greece until 2011 to close all of its unregulated dumps but the government routinely violates laws it doesn’t like while enforcing it on citizens.
