Waste management in Russia

In recent years, Russia has expanded its legislation on waste management. Initially, the focus has been on reducing the amount of waste going to landfill. Russia has also been interested in introducing producer responsibility as a method and a control instrument. As part of a cooperation project with the Swedish EPA, El-Kretsen was also invited to a seminar on producer responsibility in Moscow in 2015.
