Berlin sends three garbage trucks to Kyiv – Berlin.de

Three garbage trucks from Berlin left for Ukraine on Monday as a donation to the city of Kyiv.

Franziska Giffey (SPD,l), Regierende Bürgermeisterin von Berlin, und Stephanie Otto (r), Vorstandsvorsitzende der BSR, sprechen mit Fuhrpark-Leiter und Fahrer Wolfgang Wüllhorst (m) bei der Verabschiedung der drei gespendeten Betriebsfahrzeugen der Berliner Stadtreinigung (BSR) die ukrainische Hauptstadt Kiew.

“These are things that are really needed,” said Berlin mayor Franziska Giffi on Monday during a visit to the city’s cleaning service (Berliner Stadtreinigung – BSR). She said it was important to provide concrete help in Ukraine now, where she said over 600 buildings and over 200 homes had been destroyed in Kyiv and there is a lot to clean up.

You need a vehicle in Kyiv

Last Thursday, Giffey spoke with Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko on the phone. Klitschko expressed gratitude for this kind of support. Whether it’s a school bus or a waste collection, you need a vehicle, says Giffey. There is also a request for a school bus from Kyiv.

Handed over at the Polish-Ukrainian border on Tuesday

The vehicles are expected to be handed over at the Polish-Ukrainian border on Tuesday morning. His three drivers from a BSR subsidiary drive the vehicle. The vehicle is a little over 10 years old and can carry a total of 33 tons of waste. Wolfgang Wüllhorst, managing director of his Fuhrpark Business Service, a BSR subsidiary, does not rule out the possibility of further vehicle deliveries in the near future.
