According to the information, the metropolitan administration held a meeting with representatives of Waste to Energy, which offers a project for construction of a waste recycling plant capable of processing 1,200 tons of solid domestic waste per day into electric and thermal energy.
The Tashkent administration also noted that the plant will be able to operate safely next to settlements and schools due to advanced technologies that will be used in production.

The number of garbage polygons will double if appropriate measures aren’t taken.
