Now Ukraine needs to train personnel who will work in this area.

On Wednesday, the Cabinet of Ministers approved the National Waste Management Plan until 2030. This was reported by the press service of the Deputy Prime Minister Gennady Zubko.

“This is a detailed route map of the implementation of the national waste management strategy aimed at building in Ukraine a waste management system based on EU standards and a closed-loop economy,” Zubko quoted his press office.

Zubko said that Ukraine has already received a positive assessment of the national plan from the EU. In particular, that this is “a positive and important step towards the harmonization of Ukrainian policies and legislation in the field of waste management with EU legislation in this sector.”

The National Waste Management Plan contains:
a package of tasks for each type of waste – from the adoption of the necessary legal framework to specific measures for its collection, recycling and disposal;
developing regional waste management plans;
building regional safe landfill sites;
construction of regional complexes for the recovery of household waste;
the adoption of the draft law “On municipal waste”;
development of new DBN on landfills.

Zubko stressed that local governments and local governments should now prepare regional waste management plans. “We need to actively use the tools of inter-municipal cooperation, to train personnel who will work in the field of waste management,” he said.

Recall, the Cabinet approved the National Strategy for Waste Management until 2030 in November 2018.

As reported in early January, residents of the capital will raise prices for garbage disposal by about 20%.
