In the case of Locascia and Others v. Italy, the Court held that there had been several violations of the Convention.

The case concerned the crisis over refuse collection, treatment and disposal in the Campania region and pollution from a landfill site. The Court found that pollution from refuse had adversely impacted the applicants’ personal well-being during the waste crisis from 1994 to 2009 and that that situation had continued as concerned the landfill site, which the Italian authorities to date have still not secured or cleaned up.
