Regional interagency environmental council of the EAO: our region needs an effective waste management system

The topic of the next meeting of the Interdepartmental Environmental Council of the Jewish Autonomous Region was the issues of ensuring the environmental safety of the region when dealing with solid household waste. The problem of protecting the environment from the negative impact of waste, noted at the council, remains relevant today for both the city of Birobidzhan and for each municipality of the region.

The council discussed in detail the issues of solid waste management in the region, the environmental activities of enterprises working in this area, and in particular, Spetskombinat LLC. They mainly talked about ensuring the safety of the environment during the operation of this enterprise, including during the operation of the city landfill, which today received the status of a landfill. In addition, the results of the audit of its activities by the Rosprirodnadzor department for the Jewish Autonomous Region were announced. It was noted that OOO Spetskombinat regularly monitors the impact on the environment. At the same time, the company has not developed an environmental action plan, and residents periodically receive complaints about the burning of the city dump.

As a result, the council recommended OOO Spetskombinat to provide detailed information on the results of monitoring environmental pollution during the operation of the landfill, including the dynamics of the intake of harmful substances into groundwater, as well as to improve the territory adjacent to the Chita - Khabarovsk federal highway. Council members noted that the operation of the landfill will certainly continue in the coming years in the absence of an alternative. At the same time, the city administration is currently taking concrete steps to allocate a land plot for the construction of a modern landfill, looking for potential investors, since the municipality and even the region cannot build such an expensive facility at the expense of budget funds.

According to the chairman of the interdepartmental environmental council, vice-governor Gennady Antonov, the market for the processing and disposal of solid household waste is developing today, as evidenced by the emergence of specialized enterprises on the territory of the region for the acceptance of medical waste, mercury lamps, tires, oils, etc. At the same time, it is quite obvious that in the region it is necessary to establish effective control over the acceptance and sorting of waste, specialized enterprises to monitor the establishment of economically feasible tariffs, work on their development, improve and not stand still. It is advisable today to more actively involve business in the problem of collection, utilization and burial of waste, which, while solving its problems, will simultaneously ensure the environmental safety of the region, Gennady Antonov noted. In general, in the region, he stressed, the need to create an effective waste management system is long overdue. And here everything must be taken into account - the construction of modern landfills that meet all the requirements of the law and the needs of the region, the timely collection of garbage in the territories of municipalities, control over the formation, removal and disposal of solid household waste. The leading role in this work, as the vice-governor believes, should be assigned to the management of housing and communal services and energy of the regional government.
