ArmInfo. On October 21, Armenia will host the third national subbotnik. Prime Minister Karen Karapetyan announced this at a government meeting on October 12.

According to him, over the past few months, significant work has been  done in the framework of the "Clean Armenia" program. In particular,  two nationwide  litter pick and two additional  litter picks  in  Yerevan. As of October 3, 2017, Karen Karapetyan noted, out of 2,029  landfills, 1574 were cleared or mothballed. In all regions,  appropriate commissions and working groups have been established. 

The executive body also appointed those responsible for the  implementation of the program. A draft law on garbage collection and  sanitation was developed and presented to the National Assembly of  Armenia, which regulates this sphere. The number of agreements on  cleaning garbage with legal entities increased by 2 times, which  amounted to 25% of all business entities, and the amount of payments  for garbage collection increased, which, without taking Yerevan into  account, amounted to 51.2%.

Despite the recorded results, however, the prime minister considered  the situation with garbage collection far from ideal. He instructed  the heads of the republican departments, the mayor of Yerevan and the  heads of local communities in cooperation with the intergovernmental  commission to consistently implement the provisions of the "Clean  Armenia" program in accordance with the work plans. The Minister of  Territorial Administration and Development was entrusted to ensure  the successful holding of the third nationwide subbotnik. He demanded  before the end of the year to ensure 100% conclusion of contracts  with legal entities. The same thing, the prime minister said,  concerns raising the level of fees for garbage collection.

It should be noted that the program "Pure Armenia" started on  February 16, 2017.
