Temporary residents who come to Oslo, live in illicit camps sites and leave a great quantity of residues and faeces. For the capital it costs millions to clean up.
Last year, the Environmental Council cleaned up 153 illicit camp sites.
In general it cost 4 million NOK. It is twice more comparing with the previous year.
"There is a lot of garbage. There are a lot of mattresses, blankets and cans from food which are scattered around the camp territory in addition to sharp objects that can hurt people or animals, what may be in these areas. Besides, some feces are lying around.
Anja Bakken Riise, secretary of the City Council for Environment and Transport says that the municipal authority is doing everything possible, but highlights that EU citizens can freely travel to Norway, which mean many people come to the capital.
- We cannot act as a municipal authority against inflows and social and economic reasons. The government must take measures as for settlement of the EEA agreement and enlarge the use of police resources, Riise said.
