YEREVAN, September 18. /ARKA/. Armenia has resumed recycling garbage, Karine Danielyan, head of the Stable Human Development Association NGO and a former environment minister, said Tuesday in Novosti International Press Center during a Yerevan-Moscow-Astana-Chisinau-Kyiv televised conference focused on the CIS environmental agenda.
She said some companies in Armenia collect and recycle some kinds of wastes.
“Grand Holding Concern collects and recycles a great deal of paper, while other companies, including Cleanland, bring together plastic bottles in some towns,” she said.
Danielyan also said that an organization engaged in collection of out-of-date electrical devices has appeared in Armenia.
She singled out the lack of a separate dump for industrial wastes in Armenia and improper conditions for sorting and recycling garbage in large dumps among problems. -0-
