ABSTRACT

The environmental burdens, representing mainly the objects after the end of mining
activity, heaps and setting pits, old landfills and areas of industrial companies, belong to
most serious environmental problems in Slovakia today. The disposal of old
environmental burdens is usually solved at the regional level, but some activities
regarding the disposal are coordinated from the central level.

The article deals primarily with issue of old environmental burdens from mining
activity, which is marked by higher level of concomitant risk factors for environment
than other industrial sectors. The article also describes the options of their disposal and
liquidation.

Keywords: environmental burdens, mining activity, land
