It is an honorable and gratifying for us. Our country and of all the world must be clean as Denizli. Denizli Municipality is the model municipality with its waste water treatment plant. Fishes live in this water and it used as 1st class of agricultural irrigation water. By producing electricity from solid municipal waste Denizli Municipality has solved this problem and it provides an alternative way to produce electricity. We collect the garbage in our houses separately. We became the first according to the 28 different criteria related to environment projects. Denizli Municipality shows extraordinary efforts in terms of investment in the future. All kinds of crisis can be overcome, but the environmental crisis is the last crisis, which can not be returned. This success is also the success of our people. I thank all citizens, who support the environmental projects.
