Waste collection growth was denied

REO denied the risk of an increase in the tariff for garbage collection due to the new rules on waste transportation

the tariff for garbage collection due to the new rules on waste transportation, Rossiyskaya Gazeta reports with reference to the organization's press service.

As the newspaper notes, the new rules for regional garbage operators provide for the redistribution of spending on solid waste transportation (TKO). But payments for the population will remain the same, the RER stressed. At the same time, the transport costs of the operators themselves, on the contrary, should decrease.

“The transport leverage will be less and the costs will be reduced,” Director General of REO Denis Butsaev told Rossiyskaya Gazeta. “The regoperator will reduce transportation costs by building waste transfer stations.” The costs will be included in the tariffs of Russians – then they will have to pay for waste disposal by 6-10 percent more.

Last November, the Irkutsk eco-activists opened the first online supermarket of waste in Russia. It sells waste collected on the shores of Lake Baikal: beer cans, candy wrappers, old batteries and other items. During the first day of operation, the supermarket gained about 15 thousand rubles.
