Special grounds for collecting refused household appliances to open in Bobruisk

The system of collecting refused household and electronic appliances will be tested in Bobruisk, Zhodino and Braslav district. The strategy has been developed by the Centre of Ecological Solutions together with STIDIT, Holland.

Special grounds for collecting refused household appliances are to open in these towns, as far as such garbage both pollute the environment and do lasting damage to people's health.

"Strategies will be developed for each participant of this project, - Anatoly Kalach, coordinator of projects of the Centre of Ecological Solutions, told. The major alternatives suggested are: taking refused household appliances to special grounds, putting them into special containers, and taking them back to the producer. A person will be paid Br750 per each kg. And a collector will utilize such garbage and recycle it".

The first results of the project will be summed up by December -January. But communications work with both rural and urban population has already started. In September the project's coordinators will study how the Netherlands has succeeded in implementing the same system. In the Netherlands a person returns about 8 kg of electronic refuse per year. There are 1750 grounds collecting refused appliances in the country. By the way, anyone who puts refused appliance, e.g. a TV-set, into a special container, gets a discount for buying a new one.
