Sanitek reports that it is not able to pay salaries to its employees  because of financial crisis in the company

ArmInfo. Due to financial  difficulties, the Sanitek company, which is the exclusive monopoly  operator for sanitation cleaning of the Armenian capital, is not able  to pay employees salaries for August. This is stated in the statement  of the company following the protest rally of employees held  yesterday in front of the Yerevan Municipality, who linked the  non-payment of salaries to the municipality's failure to fulfill  financial obligations to Sanitek.

The company explained that municipal payments should be made twice a  month from the 1st to the 15th day and from the 16th to the 31st day,  however for the second half of August there were no transfers from  the Mayor's Office. ''For August, the mayor's office of Yerevan was  to transfer about 430 million drams. In the first half of August, the  Yerevan Municipality transferred 141 million 831 thousand drams to  our company, and over this period the Mayor's Office withheld 69  million 546 thousand drams. For the second half of August, no amounts  were transferred from the mayor's office. Moreover, the mayor's  office did not accept the invoices and executive acts submitted by  the company'', the statement said.

Yesterday, the press secretary of Yerevan Municipality Hakob  Karapetyan said that in August of this year the company transferred  165.34 million drams and called on the protesters who gathered to  clarify the true reasons for the non-payment of wages directly from  the Sanitek leadership.

Problems with the removal of household waste in Yerevan began in the  summer of 2018, and in the spring of 2019, Sanitek company was fined  twice for failure to fulfill obligations, for a total of a small  amount of AMD 40 million, while monthly, according to the agreement,  the municipality transferred about 5 billion drams to the company's  account. Residents of Yerevan were extremely outraged by the  accumulated garbage throughout the city and the inaction of the  relevant services. Yerevan Mayor Hayk Marutyan repeatedly publicly  expressed dissatisfaction with the work of "Sanitek" company,  stressing that Yerevan residents will no longer tolerate work of this  quality.

In this regard, garbage collection and sanitation services in 12  administrative districts of Yerevan have already begun to be carried  out with the help of the institution "Garbage collection and sanitary  cleaning in Yerevan" formed by the mayor's office. The measure was  taken to resolve the garbage crisis in the capital of Armenia. A  large amount of additional equipment has already been brought into  the city: garbage trucks of the KAMAZ brand and new garbage  containers. The mayor's office said that at the moment there is no  cooperation with Sanitek, all negotiations with the bankrupt company  have been suspended.
