The situation with garbage collection is deteriorating in the occupied Simferopol.

The so-called “head” of Crimea Sergey Aksyonov paid attention to the issue, which follows from information on his Facebook page.

According to him, as a result of inspections of the work of public utilities in the city, many problems have been identified.

“Common drawbacks - the fallen leaves and cut branches are not removed, at some of the container sites the solid communal waste is not removed from the adjacent territories. But perhaps the most important problems remain the lack of equipment and the completely inefficient operation of the existing transport," he wrote.

Aksyonov said that the city needs to purchase 10 machines for garbage collection and install about 5,000 garbage containers. So, now in the city there are only 24 units of equipment that serve more than 3.5 thousand container sites.

Aksyonov expects a plan from the Crimean officials to address the situation with garbage.

“Friday is the end of the probationary period for a number of administration officials. 
Garbage collection in the capital will be provided with you or without you.”

A photo with piles of garbage near containers in Simferopol were posted in a public RoksolanaToday & Crimea on Twitter.

Moreover, the "authorities" of the city intend to clear the river Salgir from debris.

According to the publication ForPost, the city estimated that it would take 104 million rubles, which they intend to get from Moscow.

“Tons of household garbage, branches and other waste have accumulated in some areas. In addition, a significant amount of sludge sediment is observed. In the case of funding, after the competitive procedures, work will begin as early as next year,” noted the“ head of city administration” Igor Lukashev.

Earlier “Deputy Prime Minister of the Crimea” Yuriy Gotsanyuk said that 146 million rubles are needed to clear the rivers of the Bolshoi Salgir, Maly Salgir and Slavyanka rivers.

Residents of the occupied Crimea  regularly write in social networks that the Crimean cities are buried in mud, garbage dumps are growing. Thus, in Simferopol, along the Mate Zalki Street, the garbage was partially blocking the roadway for more than two weeks.
