Every year, over 70 million bags of waste are discarded in Russia, equivalent to the weight of 12 Great Pyramids of Giza. The area of official landfills alone grows by 400,000 hectares per year, which is larger than the combined territory of Moscow and St. Petersburg. If nothing is done, by the end of the decade, this area will be twice the size of the Sea of Azov. The government is concerned about addressing this issue: in 2018, a nationwide effort dubbed 'Ekologia' was begun. The most important aspect of this plan is the development of a long-term system for dealing with municipal solid waste. It is planned to build 220 new modern waste processing, storage, and disposal complexes by 2024. Furthermore, by 2028, the quantity of garbage transported to landfills should be cut in half, with 100% of it processed, opening the way for a more efficient recycling system. In Russia, 1.4 million tonnes of electronic waste are created. According to the research, this figure is 130 thousand tonnes per year in Moscow alone, with only about 25% of this volume processed. Despite the fact that approximately 1000 licences for the disposal of electronic waste have been issued. According to the research report “Russia E-Waste Management Market Research Report, 2028," published by Actual Market Research, the market will add by USD 0.64 Billion in the upcoming period, 2023–2028. According to the source type, the market consists of Household Appliances such as air conditioners, dishwashers, and induction cookers, among others. Mobile devices, wearables, TVs, set-top boxes, monitors, laptops, tablets, computers, printers, scanners, and so on are all examples of consumer electronics. IT & Telecom Equipment, IT Accessories, PCBs, Digital Boards, Datacenters, Medical Equipment and Accessories are all examples of Industrial Electronics. Household sectors dominate the market since electronic gadgets are needed for almost all household tasks such as cleaning and cooking. More than a third of what is considered household garbage will be repurposed as raw material for new valuable things. A children's bike, for example, may be made from 400 aluminum cans, while a fleece jacket can be made from just 25 plastic bottles. However, only 5-7% of garbage in Russia is recycled at the moment. In Russia 'Ekologia' will develop a map with information on the nearest garbage collection places in the near future, so that each individual can immediately identify where glass, paper, batteries, and other items may be disposed of within walking distance in their region. 'Ekologia' strives to educate Russians on the relevance of ideas such as sustainable consumerism, circularity, and zero-waste, in order to reduce waste generation in the first place. In Russia, it is illegal to dispose of household equipment, computer systems, or hard drives in regular garbage cans beginning March 1, 2022. These materials will have to be recycled. However, the infrastructure required to comply with the new legislation is still not fully in place. "In Russia's regions, there are very few recycling points for collecting household appliances. There are some challenges today when it comes to recycling items such as televisions, refrigerators, computers, and other equipment. There are several enterprises and companies that take in these goods from Russians, then separate the valuable metal from plastic and hand over all the parts for recycling,” Yulia Totskaya, Editor-in-Chief of ecowiki.ru (an online platform for promoting an eco-friendly lifestyle and growing the ecological community in Russia) says. Authorities on a municipal level should provide collection points for e-waste. According to Totskaya, 1-2 such points per district is enough. If the infrastructure for properly disposing of e-waste is in place, then people will understand where to take their old household appliances without the risk of being fined. According to the Ministry of Industry and Trade, around 3.6-5 million tonnes of plastic garbage are created in Russia each year. While dealing with electronic waste remains a challenge for Russia, when it comes to plastic, Russians are proving to be increasingly resourceful and creative. There appears to be no shortage of start-ups and businesses demonstrating that one man's garbage may easily be another man's treasure. 'Umnaya Sreda' (Smart Environment) is a Kaliningrad-based company that makes street furniture such as bins, plant pots, and benches out of used plastic bags, packaging film, and sand. The Uraltermoplast Company in Yekaterinburg converts plastic into polymer, which is then used to make colourful boards for playgrounds, fences, and garden furniture. Fines are levied for inappropriate disposal of computers, appliances, system units, boards, and hard drives: 1-2 thousand rubles for persons, 100-250 thousand rubles for organisations. For repeated violations throughout the year, people face fines of 2-3 thousand rubles, while businesses face fines of 250-400 thousand rubles. If individuals or the environment were harmed, citizens would pay 3-4 thousand rubles, while organisations would pay 400-500 thousand rubles. By February 21, 2022, the Moscow Region will have several dozen "megabaks" where you can load household appliances and other special waste. Meanwhile, Moscow has started the pilot service "Export of superfluous objects," according to the Parliamentary daily.Russia are DILO Armaturen und Anlagen GmbH, Inciner8 Limited, Presona AB, Tana Oy, EnviroChemie GmbH - part of the EnviroWater Group, Lamor Corporation Ab, SSI Schäfer Plastics GmbH, Elgin Separation Solutions, COWI A/S, Delitek AS and many more.
