Krasnodar, 20 July. The issue of segregated garbage collection has reportedly been discussed at the Sochi City Hall. According to the local press service, presently there are about 200,000 tourists in Sochi. Every day, around 1,300 tons of household waste are collected from garbage containers installed in the city. At the moment, 1,828 new garbage containers are being installed in different neighbourhoods of the city, with due account for the needs of local dwellers.
Sochi Mayor Aleksei Kopaigorodsky was quoted as saying in this regard that the contractor should step up the work on concluding garbage removal contracts with legal entities and natural persons, and the road police should help ensure uninterrupted movement of garbage removing vehicles.
Artur Rogonian, Director of the Department of Municipal Infrastructure, reported that the scheduled replacement of garbage containers had begun last autumn, when the first 500 containers were installed. The new galvanized containers are stronger and more durable than plastic ones.
