In December 2020, a new pilot project will be launched in Azerbaijan to reduce the amount of household waste through recycling. The goal of the “Clean Sumgayit” project, which started in Sumgait, is to involve the population in sorting, collecting and processing household waste.
Saiara Mammadova, head of the environmental awareness and public relations department of the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources, said that the containers will be placed in Sumgait as part of a project that provides for the practical implementation of an effective plastic waste management system. Awareness-raising activities on sorting household waste will be organized.
