In three months, Tolokers managed to rate a whopping 74,686 trash container sites in 58 regions of Russia. Their efforts resulted in a rating of the cleanest and dirtiest cities and helped raise awareness about problems with garbage disposal in some regions.
For example, only 11% of the containers inspected in North Ossetia were clean, so now the regional government reviews the rating every three months to identify problematic sites and adjust the work of the waste management companies that oversee them.
Top 3 regions with the best waste container site management:
- Yaroslavl Oblast
- Moscow Oblast
Improved waste container site management since the project’s launch:
- Sakhalin Oblast
- Tyumen Oblast
- Tula Oblast
