the capital of Tatarstan, reminded about it today at the Business Monday in the

organize a separate waste collection.

sorting garbage. Today the Mayor presented it to his colleagues. “We tell our
residents about the separate collection of waste in an accessible form, in
general, this work is already underway”, said I. Metshin.
week’s meeting of the city headquarters was devoted to the introduction of
separate collection of municipal solid waste. The next meeting will raise the
topic of separate garbage removal. “There are many issues, because we are one
of the pilot cities that have taken on this task”, he said.
project for the implementation of a separate collection of municipal waste
started in the capital of Tatarstan in the summer of 2018. At the initial
stage, 109 container sites of the Aviastroitelny district were equipped with
428 containers for recyclable and non-recyclable waste. As a result, the volume
of removal of municipal solid waste to landfill was reduced by 30-35%. Today,
47% of the housing stock in Kazan is transferred to separate waste collection.
In total, 878 sites are equipped with containers for dual garbage collection.
