Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
just to dedicate about landfills of Johannesburg, about their history and their current management.

Never mind about their cyanide contents that still blow across the city during strong gales...

Particularly the landfills around west Soweto are gargantuan in size and the impact of gold mining has been disastrous for the wetlands south of Johannesburg...
