Construction of landfill for MSW from Moscow and the Moscow region is at the station Shies July 2018. The people of the region since the end of August go to rallies and other protest actions, demanding to close the building, and the Governor of Orlov, strongly supported this project, to send in his resignation.
Once in March in the district of Chiesa clashes between activists and truck drivers in the region started a total persecution of activists, they were detained, they searched. 8 April in Arkhangelsk there was held a regular detention of about a dozen environmental activists who have joined an indefinite action. And on 28 April, the activists created a human shield, preventing the passage of fuel tankers with fuel for the builders landfill.
In the Moscow Department of housing explained that the 14 existing landfills of the Moscow region can’t take all the garbage of the capital, they barely cover their own needs of the region. And Moscow every year throws away nearly 8 million tons of household waste and 2.4 million tonnes of bulky waste.
Arkhangelsk region was chosen for the implementation of the garbage project for a number of reasons. Among them is the availability of transport infrastructure, low population density and climatic conditions. The local government has already approved the project, under which waste from Moscow will be transported by rail to the landfill near the railway station Lies in Lensky district of the Arkhangelsk region. Preparation for construction is already in full swing.
