Collect and recycle. Worldwide experience in waste management
Waste management is one of the most difficult questions for modern cities. The infrastructure can't keep up with urbanization and modern waste and recycling plants should be appearing instead of landfills. Moscow alone produces more than 10 000 tons of waste every day. A new law regulating the system of managing solid municipal waste should help to overcome the crisis. In addition to issues related to infrastructure development, issues regarding the transition to recycling, regulating the prices and creating a market for recycled materials will be addressed. Recently, Moscow announced the transition to recycling by 2020. Another relevant topic for the city is managing construction waste.
- How are Moscow and other cities working on creating infrastructure for waste collection and recycling?
- Does the government plan to create new markets for recycled materials?
- What are Moscow's policies regarding construction waste and what innovations are planned in this area?
