Paraguay Today: Naples' Trash is Paraguay's Treasure?

Have you been following the waste crisis in Napoli? Apparently, they've decided to set a former police chief to the task of getting rid of the accumulating 100,000 tons of filth in the streets...

Italian Businessman Proposes Sending Paraguay the Trash Accumulated in Naples

According to a report by EFE [the Spanish AP], cited in Rome, an Italian businessman has proposed sending Paraguay, via a foundation in that country, the urban waste generated by the region of Campania (whose capital is Naples), which would resolved the so-called "trash crisis," which affects that southern zone and which would benefit some 10,000 Paraguayans.
