As reported, bids will be accepted from August 28, 2018.

The tender documents stipulate the minimum capacity of the waste recycling plant should be 426,000 tonnes.

As UNIAN reported earlier, a new recycling plant was planned to be built in the capital within the following two or three years.

In October 2016, Kyiv City Council approved a plan of environmental safety measures at Solid Waste Landfill No. 5 in the village of Pidhirtsi (Kyiv region) with a budget of UAH 300 million (US$11 million).

The landfill is to be closed before October 2018.
