(KZN.RU, December 25, Ksenia Shvetsova). According to the Booking.com rating, Kazan entered the top 5 of the cleanest cities in Russia. Participants and guests of the World Cup, as well as world media covering this event, also primarily noted the cleanliness of the capital of Tatarstan. This suggests that residents respectfully treat their city, said Ilsur Metshin, the Mayor of Kazan.
Kazan citizens began not only to clean up the city, but also highly appreciate and respect the work of other people, said Ilsur Metshin during the program “Theme” on the TV channel “Efir” today. “We are among the cleanest cities in the country, it is worth a lot. We have worked on this and will continue to do so. I thank Kazan citizens for respecting the city. Without your attitude and love such a result would not exist”, said the Mayor. He added that the hospitality and goodwill of the Kazan residents delight the tourists and visitors as well.
A major contribution to the creation of cleanliness in the city is played by the issue of timely and competent removal and disposal of garbage. The Mayor reminded that today, the city produces 500 thousand waste a year. In order for the waste issue not to become a problem, it is necessary to introduce separate garbage collection, which this year has already been launched in a trial mode on the territory of the Aviastroitelny district. “Today, the content of garbage has changed, there is a lot of plastic and other hazardous waste. Therefore, if we want to live in a clean, environmentally friendly, comfortable city, the work on introducing separate garbage collection in the city is one of the most important for the near future. I am sure that we will manage”, said I. Metshin.
From January 1, a new procedure for handling municipal solid waste will take effect in Russia.
