We would like to remind you that the construction of a new regional non-hazardous waste landfill is planned within the framework of the project “Integrated Solid Waste Management – Kutaisi” in accordance with European standards. The project also includes the organization of a system of waste transfer stations and equipping municipalities with special waste collection techniques needed for waste collection and treatment. This system will completely replace the existing landfills, which will be gradually closed in accordance with the standards. As a result of the project implementation, environmental and sanitary standards in the project regions will be significantly improved.
The project “Integrated Solid Waste Management – Kutaisi” is currently being implemented under German-Georgian bilateral cooperation, with the financial support of the EU Neighborhood Investment Platform (NIF), the German Bank of Reconstruction (KfW) and the Government of Georgia.
