Azerbaijan interested in private sector solid waste management
Azerbaijan, Baku, March 15 /Trend A.Akhundov/
Attracting private companies will be one of the components of a national strategy for managing municipal solid waste, the head of the department in the Ministry of Economic Development Sahil Babayev told reporters on Thursday.
"Now the government is working to create an industrial recycling park near the Balakhani landfill. Creation of such a park will be a great incentive for private sector development in the field of recycling," Babayev said.
He added that the country will provide a base for the implementation of cooperative projects between the government and the private sector in waste collection and disposal."The base is open to all investors, both local and foreign," Babayev said.
The main direction of the national strategy for managing solid waste in Azerbaijan will be determined by the summer of this year, after which the government will begin preparation.
