Governor of Nizhny Novgorod, Gleb Nikitin stated the need for the introduction of special insurance for landfills, which will guarantee funds for reclamation of the landfill after its closure. His words TASS reports.
The decision to insure landfills on the cost of remediation is motivated by the fact that often the companies that own or operate landfills that cease operation before start repairing the damage in the end, the government can’t make claims to pay for the work.
“There is an option that we [the members of the working group “Environment and natural resources” of the state Council] will work through it — insurance is the responsibility of the owner. We have this issue with companies that will discuss,” — said Nikitin.
Until 2024 in Russia it is planned to implement the national project “Ecology”, according to which the country is going to create a modern system of solid waste will create conditions for recycling all post-consumer waste prohibited for disposal. All will spend four trillion rubles, three of which will receive from investors.
