The Mayor of Kazan about the Samosyrovskaya landfill
We work a lot in terms of supporting entrepreneurs. But there are special priority areas that require development and concessional lending. For example, the collection, processing, and disposal of waste, namely PET bottles, polymer containers, waste paper, glass containers, and other products. Work with waste is the question, the solution to which must be found quickly! It is necessary to meet with businessmen and discuss projects. Someone has bright ideas, but lacks power. Someone has power, but does not have enough money or something else. Let's discuss it, so that we can move in this direction.
Otherwise, we will come to the situation as in Volokolamsk near Moscow, where there was a release of toxic landfill gas from the Yadrovo landfill last week. As a result, several dozens of children were taken to the city hospital with poisonings. We prepare for this. We started the re-cultivation of the Samosyrovksaya landfill. We remember how the landfill burned, smoldered, and how there was a smell and smoke because it burned even in Svobody Square in the summer. Therefore, the decision to re-cultivate and close the landfill was a big victory for the whole city. 46 million tons on 30 hectares with a height of 46 meters, with a 16-storey house. There is no such equipment that can extinguish such a burning landfill. We have liquidated this environmental time bomb.
All projects that are associated with garbage and in general with urban management, need to be supported. We need to help small and medium-sized business participants organize the business so that it is profitable. Of course, this is not oil refining. But it is also a good income item for industrious, patient, capable businessmen all over the world”.
