ArmInfo.The situation with garbage removal in Armenia is close to critical. This was stated by Karen Karapetyan, the Prime Minister, on April 20 at the Government session.
The Government head reminded that based on results of Clean Armenia Project launched on February 16, 2017 it was discovered that only waste disposal sites occupy up to 430 ha. " the absence of proper control, incomplete work on garbage removal in cities and towns and at road sectors - the situation is close to tragic. I think everybody noticed that," the Prime Minister accentuated. According to him, this situation is the result of long and wrong organization of the waste removal works, and mistakes of regions governors and communities heads, "who perform their duties in imperfect manner and sometimes even fail performing those properly". They are liable not only for the proper organization of waste removal, but for correction of the situation formed," Karapetyan stated.
"The Clean Armenia Project implementation starts today," Karen Karapetyan summarized, instructing the regions and communities to develop and to submit in two months terms an appropriate program on cancellation of the problems mentioned. According to the Prime Minister, the situation is unacceptable for today.
