Looking for rubbish containers for Russian regions 12 billion rubles

The Ministry of Natural Resources of Russia proposed to allocate 12 billion rubles for the purchase of garbage containers in the regions. They are needed, including for separate collection of waste.

The Russian environmental operator (REO), even before the start of the garbage reform, reported that there were not enough garbage containers in the regions of Russia. At the same time, in many settlements, residents generally do not have access to separate collection of garbage. As reported RBC, with the initiative to replace garbage containers in the regions, the head of the State Duma’s Ecology Committee Vladimir Burmatov addressed the Ministry of Natural Resources. According to him, especially in rural areas, container sites look like dumps and look like “uniform squalor”.

In total, according to the RER, the country lacks 750 thousand containers for mixed waste collection. At the same time, more than half of the regions requested support from the federal budget for the purchase of containers for separate collection. Local budgets are unable to bear such costs, and many regional waste collection and disposal operators did not even include such an item in their costs.

Now the Ministry of Finance is considering a document from the Ministry of Natural Resources, asking them to allocate about 12 billion rubles for the purchase of new containers. However, according to the Ministry of Natural Resources, this amount will still not be enough to satisfy all the need for new waste bins. This is especially true for the separate collection of garbage.

Introduction garbage reform in Russia began in 2018, however, some regions were not able to establish the work of regional operators. Problems with garbage collection under the new regulations were observed in Primorye, Trans-Baikal Territory and other regions.
