The authorities of Magadan may introduce an emergency mode if the situation with garbage collection does not improve. The city still has not adjusted waste management under the new MSW management scheme.

According to the press service of the administration of Magadan, the work of LLC Regional Operator Magadansky began on January 1, 2019. However, so far in the city there is often a glut of container sites and untimely removal of MSW.

According to the mayor of Magadan, Yuri Grishan, last year there were no difficulties, and in this situation became much worse. At the same time, the mayor’s office cannot bring the re-operator to justice - there are no powers. In total, there are 482 container sites in the city, 356 of which are under the jurisdiction of the municipality.

According to the city authorities, one of the reasons for this situation is the strong deterioration of containers. Because of this, their number was greatly reduced at the sites. Moreover, this summer the situation was complicated by coronavirus - many Magadans could not go on vacation, they started repairing.

There are also a number of outlets in the city that have not yet concluded an agreement on garbage collection with a regional operator. From street sales outlets, garbage is most often taken to wherever convenient.

The acquisition of new containers can improve the situation; the government of the Magadan Region has already announced the purchase. But so far there are no prepared sites for the distribution of containers. According to Yuri Grishan, if the situation does not improve, an emergency mode will be introduced in the city, and the problem will have to be solved on its own.
