Earlier, the crisis with garbage disposal in Lviv took off after Hrybovychi dump in Lviv area was closed over a fire in May 2016 that killed several people.

SBU initiated criminal investigation into the fire. Lviv Mayor Andrii Sadovyi said the fire at the dump occurred due to an arson.

Lviv authorities asked the Cabinet to announce environmental emergency in the city over uncollected garbage. In response, Prime Minister Hroisman addressed Lviv Mayor Sadovyi: "Let me say sorry to Lviv residents that you hadn't solved this problem in 11 years." Sadovyi responded: "I expected more adequate response from the prime minister than elementary rudeness."
