A waste processing plant with an annual capacity of more than 250.000 wastes per year is being built in Lviv. Currently, the plant's design is fully completed, and construction work is 25% completed. The next stage is the installation of the equipment. A food and garden waste composting farm was built next to the plant.
In 2016, a powerful fire broke out at the Hrybovytsky landfill in Lviv, as a result of which 3 people died, and the waste disposal site itself was closed. The garbage from Lviv and the region was delivered to other regions of Ukraine for months. After that, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development and the Dutch-Lithuanian consortium WTT-Axis decided to build a waste processing plant. By the end of 2023, the plant's construction will be completed, the plant will be put into operation, and the updated landfill will be launched in parallel.
