Tambov Grid Company has begun to liquidate unauthorized city dumps in the regional center.
From late March to mid-April 2021, the amount of garbage in the Tambov region increased by about a third, in the regional center – almost doubled.
As the director of the Tambov branch of JSC “TSK” Alexander Lutovinov explained, the increase in the volume of municipal waste is associated with the spring general cleaning. Despite the fact that plant and wood waste does not belong to the MSW category and is subject to removal by any specialized organization under a separate agreement, many Tambov residents continue to arrange illegal dumps.
– Many carry out general cleaning in their houses and on their plots, often unauthorized dumps are formed, this problem is especially acute in the private sector, where residents throw plant and wood waste on MSW sites., – said Alexander Lutovinov.
The city administration has already compiled a list of unauthorized dumps. At the moment, the elimination of garbage has already begun at the Polynkovo cemetery.
