Specialized containers for draining liquid waste have recently appeared in the yards of ill-equipped houses in the capital of the republic. However, this did not solve the problem of cleaning the sanitary spots, Yakutia 24 TV channel reports.
Every year in winter, in the yards of ill-equipped wooden houses in Yakutsk, one may observe overflowing garbage cans and ice mountains from liquid slops.
In some areas of the city, there are no specialized tanks for draining liquid household waste. So, the residents of some houses have to drain all sewage directly onto the road.
“We tried to separate sanitary facilities for solid and liquid household waste. But that didn’t help, the metal containers got filled up,” said Aleksey Seleznev, master of “Yakutskecoseti” regional operator.
A regoperator’s duties only include transportation, removal and burial of municipal solid waste. But due to the fact that residents pour liquid waste into the cans, the metal containers freeze, which complicates the work of specialized equipment.
Due to the current problem, the regoperator decided not to operate the city’s ill-equipped and partially equipped houses until the spring. This task was shifted to Municipal Unitary Enterprise “Zhilkomservice”. But this did not save the situation, since the sanitary point for everyone is common.
According to the staff of Yakutskecoseti, to date, more than one letter was sent to the leadership of “Union” management company to solve this problem.
Another way out is to install specialized metal ballot boxes for liquids, since wooden boxes have long been filled. The principle of operation is simple – after the container is full, the walls of the urn are moved away, and the frozen ice lump is disposed. Today, there are 48 such devices on the balance of the Union.
“We put them, but not on all addresses, of course. We will order more”, said Ekaterina Dyukova, a specialist in landscaping at Union Management Company.
