29 January 2010 [16:44] - Today.Az
In order to resolve the issue of garbage removal in the republic, the Armenian government has decided to announce an international competition among private companies.
Presenting the concept of regulating residential waste in the city of Yerevan, Minister of Economy Nerses Yeritsyan, during a government session, said that Yerevan will be divided into different areas and waste disposal in those areas will be handed over to different private companies.
The minister expects that private companies will take over waste removal beginning from July 2011, when vehicles will be secured and garbage bins will be placed.
Also planned during this overhaul are closed areas of waste disposal.
The implementation of this new program has received support, by way of equipment, from the World Bank.
