JSC "Waste Management" operates Engelssky Intermunicipal Polygon according to the concession agreement with the Saratov Region Government. The affiliate has signed contracts for the processing and disposal of wastes at the Engelssky Recycling Complex with 93 enterprises in the Saratov Region.

On average, more than 50 garbage trucks of different capacity with solid municipal and large wastes are arriving at the Engelssky Recycling Complex every day. After sorting, processing and shredding on specialized equipment, less than 40% of the total waste is sent to the maps of the Intermunicipal Polygon municipal solid waste, which is subject to additional packing at the polygon.

In terms of the sort amount, incoming municipal solid waste sorted about 40% of the secondary material resources. Besides, all the wood incoming to the Engelssky Intermunicipal Polygon remains to be recycled for the production of biocompost and heating of premises (about 5%). Also, after shredding, the volume of large waste is reduced. 60 per cent of the waste generated by the production area is reduced As a result of the work.

Agency for Strategic Initiatives recommends this project as one of the best social and economic practices in the housing and public utilities in Russia.

The project is aimed at:

  • Environmentally safe location of municipal solid waste.
  • Improving sanitary and environmental conditions for settlements in the region.
  • Increasing the number of wastes returned for secondary use. 
  • Reducing the morbidity of the population.
Two high-tech waste transfer stations at closed Guselsky and Elshansky polygons in Saratov are being opened in the near future, wastes from Volsky and Khvalinskyi municipal districts are already being transported to a civilized burial site at Balakovsky Intermunicipal Polygon.

All the projects of the JSC “Waste Management” in the region have almost gone through the construction stage and are moving into the operational phase. The Engelssky recycling complex and 11 Recycling Complexes have been in operation for more than two years, and the Saratov Recycling Complexes will become operational in the near future.
