Spotlight Activity: Protests Against Pollution from Overfull Landfills and Demonstrations Against the Planned Construction of a Garbage Incinerator in the Moscow Region

Residents of Moscow region towns have been protesting since January against the increased pollution from overfull landfills next to their towns. Resident protests all over the Moscow region intensified after dozens of children were rushed to hospitals with symptoms of gas poisoning on March 21 in Volokolamsk.  Moreover, local residents of several towns have been trying to block rubbish trucks from entering the landfill dump for weeks. Some of them were arrested for participating in “illegal protests”.

The Government claims that closing the landfills will take several months and the only proposed solution for the moment is building 4 Incineration plants in the Moscow area, which will release not only toxic substances but also greenhouse gases.

Status: Falling Behind

Landfill gases are out of the Moscow government’s control and there is no clear action on landfill management. Moreover, the only proposed decision is building new landfills and Incineration plants, which will increase CO2 gas emission.
