Garbage truck too ra­dioac­tive

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Author­i­ties at Athens’s only of­fi­cial land­fill iso­lated a garbage col­lec­tion truck af­ter spot checks re­vealed that it was dis­play­ing lev­els of ra­dioac­tiv­ity that were 10 times above the safety limit.

The At­tica Re­gional Au­thor­ity re­vealed that the high level of ra­dioac­tiv­ity was dis­cov­ered when the truck ar­rived at the Fyli land­fill from the trash pro­cess­ing cen­ter in Schisto and un­der­went a rou­tine in­spec­tion.

The ve­hi­cle was taken to an area out­side of the land­fill and ex­perts from the Na­tional Cen­ter for Sci­en­tific Re­search were called to ex­am­ine the truck and find out the cause of the high ra­dioac­tiv­ity lev­els.
