The decision to open an organic waste recycling plant was taken on November 9th by the executive committee of the Lviv City Council. The “Green City” will choose a place for the future plant, writes “Agro-Center”.
Ukraine is among the countries with the highest volumes of generation and accumulation of waste. Annually, 700-720 million tons of rubbish are formed in Ukraine.
The idea to build an organic waste recycling plant in Lviv belongs to local activists. This initiative was also supported by the city council. Next year, in addition to garbage bins, there will be containers for collecting organic matter.
Half of all solid household waste is organic. Therefore, separate containers for food and garden waste will be installed. In addition, Lviv will buy a separate garbage truck and 3 mobile composters.
“Such composting stations are the most efficient way to process organic waste. It is important that the city has a well-adjusted system of separate garbage collection so that this station can receive more or less pure organic matter. There’s is enough of it in Lviv”,
said Vadim Nozdrya, Head of the “Green City”.
It is planned that the plant will begin its work in the first half of 2019. It will be able to process up to 30 000 tons of organic waste per year.
