The report is initially based on the testimony of the inhabitants of Pavia who are campaigning within an association for the closure of the landfill. Asked by Paul Labrosse, the president of Friends of the Earth 32 Jean-Manuel Fullana mentions, among other things, the “release of toxic gases” caused by the last fires (two in 2020, one in 2022) and the “risk of underground pollution” linked to decades of anarchic burial.

“The perfect is not of this world”

M6 then gives the floor to the president of Trigone Francis Dupouey. The latter recognizes that the site can cause pollution peaks, “at a certain time and punctually”. “The perfect is not of this world (…) We have no other solutions for treating waste in our department”, he adds however.

Convinced that “the Pavia landfill only exists because we want it to last”, Jean-Manuel Fullana welcomes this media spotlight on the fight led by local residents. “This lighting sums up all by itself the problem of waste in general, and in the Gers in particular”, he concludes.
