According to experts, illegal dump sites in the middle Urals often appear in rural areas due to the fact that the residents are not accustomed to and can’t take out the trash at authorized landfills because of their remoteness.

All this (result of the decomposition of municipal solid wastes) end up on our table through the food chain,” said Deputy head of the Department of land surveillance of the Rosselkhoznadzor administration for the region Claudia Shcherbakov.
“The region was 406 facilities and waste disposal. In 66% of the objects is unknown who is responsible for the operation of a place of waste disposal, 88% of facilities not assessed the hydrogeological conditions, 60% documents are not decorated accordingly. As a result, in the state register of waste disposal, which will also work with regional operators, included 34 facilities that are now operating in the region”, – said the Deputy head of the regional Department of Rospotrebnadzor.
According to participated in a round table of experts for the elimination of unauthorized dumps, in addition to establishing regional operators, it is necessary to introduce new technologies for processing and recycling.
In particular, Deputy General Director of “Uralotel” which is engaged in manufacturing screening lines, Vladimir Stepanov offers before reclamation landfill to sort debris accumulated there.
“Lead the waste to the sorting plant is costly, therefore we propose to use a mobile sorting systems to sort in place. Extracted useful fractions: plastic, metal and others, then sold, and the money goes to restoration”, – said Stepanov.

The Director of the Ekaterinburg branch of the company “Ekostroyresurs”, which deals with utilization and recycling of MSW, Dennis Striganov believes that home plumbing is required to install garbage grinders to the drain, it was possible to wash away organic waste.
Director of the company for the manufacture of plastic products “Uraltermoplast” Andrey Sazonov is the sort of garbage has proposed to introduce a more modern technology.
“In Warsaw, for example, the factory recycles 80-90% of waste, although they are not sorted, and in garbage sites are containers for separate collection, but they are filled with all kinds of garbage,” he said.
Garbage can be incinerated, but this method is harmful to the environment.
“If you put cleaning on waste incineration plants, it will be very expensive, and, ultimately, will pay for it’s population. And enterprises under the law you can build 3-4 km from the houses, and no one to pull the heating duct at such a distance will not” – said the Minister of energy and utilities Sverdlovsk oblast Nikolay Smirnov.
