July 8). A document establishing a mandatory procedure for the separate
collection of municipal solid waste (MSW) will be adopted in Kazan. It will
allow controlling the work of city organizations and institutions in the field
of MSW management, introducing responsibility for them for non-fulfillment of
requirements, and also reducing the cost of garbage collection for citizens.
Iskander Giniyatullin, the deputy head of the Executive Committee, announced
this at the Business Monday today.
implementation of the separate collection of MSW in Kazan requires creating a
regulatory framework. For this, it is necessary to adopt a document that not
only establishes the procedure for separate collection, but also provides
liability for failure to implement this decision, noted I. Giniyatullin. “There
are a lot of institutions and organizations of different levels of jurisdiction
and forms of ownership in Kazan, which we can only persuade, and not always
successfully”, he said. For a broader and more effective implementation of a
separate collection in the republic, there is not enough regulatory framework
that binds introduce separate collection and sorting of waste.
existing documents say that if there are separate accumulation and collection,
then it should be in a dual format. But there is no main thing: the obligation
of separate accumulation and responsibility for non-execution of this
decision”, explained the deputy head of the Executive Committee. Today, only
one subject decided on the obligatory transition to a separate collection of
MSW in 2020 – Moscow.
document establishing the procedure for separate collection is also necessary
to reduce citizens' fees for exporting MSW. The introduction of payment after
delivery, and not according to the standard, is possible only in the case of
organized separate accumulation of waste. And the organized separate
accumulation of MSW is considered upon approval of the regulatory act.
Executive Committee prepared a letter to the Ministry of Construction of the RT
on the need to adopt a regulatory document, noted I. Giniyatullin.
