VTV.vn - While all the waste that Formosa Ha Tinh illegally buried at a farm in Ky Anh town has been removed, the firm has been found dumping waste at another landfill in the same town in Ky Trinh.

The waste is made up of construction materials, wood, soil, rocks, sand, and paint barrels. The people’s Committee of Ky Anh asked the locality to work with the Ha Tinh Waste treatment company to remove the waste. The removal process is set to begin today.

Formosa Ha Tinh was found responsible for the mass fish deaths along the coast of the central provinces of Ha Tinh, Quang Binh, Quang Tri and Thua Thien-Hue between April and May this year.

It pledged to compensate over 11.5 trillion VND (500 million USD) to support local fishermen and recover the polluted marine environment.
