Don't have money for repairing works?

This discussion started in February and the officials were trying to decide what they can do with those buildings which are located on the main streets of our city. The thing is that on 300th anniversary of Omsk will come many famous people and our officials are embarrased and don't want to show the guests this old, shabby and dingy buildings. But unfortunately there is no money to repair the buildings earlier there was a suggestion to take money from Capital Improvement Fund but the mayor of Omsk oblast has found another solution for this problem.

Omsk still doesn't want to sort trash

The International environmental organization designed a special map of Russia which shows the enthusiasm of each city to sort the household refuse and Omsk is at the bottom position on this map. There are 63 cities on this map and they have been devided into five groups from those where the sorting of household refuse is already working up to those where nothing has been done so far. Among the first group is only one city Petrozavodsk which has the whole recycling system. Ekaterinburg and Novosibirsk are among those cities which support this idea and they have special recycling plants and stations for collecting the recycliable material. Unfortunately Omsk is in the last group according to specialists Omsk city hall desn't want to implement recycling technologies. Omsk city hall told that all they can do is to wait when the new recycling factory will be built and when there will be the sanitation scheme. Also Omsk citizen can write a letter to the mayor or governer and ask them to organize separate collection of waste. The recycling of waste is a very important issue for Omsk especially when two SDW landfills were shut down in Omsk and now there is only one working. And the building of rubbish incinerator plant was put off for unkown period of time as it was said by vice-mayor and the head of Department of municipal economy Sergey Frolov.
