Head of Rome's rubbish collection agency AMA steps down.
Gualtieri, of the centre-left Partito Democratico (PD), said that "€32.3 million had been identified through existing resources, with €7.7 million in additional resources identified in the budget."
The plan is centred around five main pillars: sweeping the streets every three days and removing trash left dumped around bins; the removal of illegal rubbish tips; the sanitation of bins; taking care of greenery; and the maintenance of drains.
The 55-year-old mayor, who is expected to reveal his team of councillors this week, faces an uphill task in cleaning up a city long plagued by a rubbish crisis.
Gualtieri's announcement follows the resignation of Stefano Zaghis from his post as sole administrator of Rome's municipal refuse collection agency AMA.
