Now the collection and disposal of solid waste is included in the structure of municipal services maintenance of buildings
At the meeting of the Commission on environmental policy of the city Council city Council deputies supported the draft decision about how to consider waste management a separate utility service.
According to Kiev officials, the right to grant this old-new utilities must be decided on a competitive basis.
Now the collection and disposal of solid waste is included in the structure of utility services for maintenance of houses, constructions and house adjoining territories. However, according to Council members, this service fully covers the collection and disposal of garbage, particularly the private sector.
There is also the problem of the lack in Kiev, controlled system of removal and repair of construction waste, low level of payment of the population for the provided services, lack of separate collection of solid household waste, as well as competition in the market of housing and communal services.
“Today, this service is in calculating the number of residents on the rate of formation of the TBO that is calculated around the house and then divided by square meters. Accordingly, the residents of the houses pay for the square meters, but not for the actual accumulation of waste”, – explained in the city Council.
The capital’s deputies believe that implementation of individual utilities will create an economically balanced system of garbage collection and allow consumers to enter into direct contracts with providers for collection and disposal of solid waste.
As stated by the Deputy Director of the Department of housing and communal infrastructure of the Executive body of Kyiv city Council Oleksandr Malykhin, now the population’s funds for this purpose are sent to utility companies involved in the maintenance of houses and adjacent territories, which are then calculated with entities engaged in the export of solid waste.
The final decision on this issue should take members of city Council.
