The construction of the plant worth 3.4 billion tenge (US$10.3 million) will begin in August and finish in September 2019. The technology will recycle 180,000 tonnes of organic wastes, or 50 percent of waste from the total amount. The mayor Akim Asset also said that last year the company, which is going to construct the plant, spent more than 1 billion tenge (US$3 million) to purchase 30 garbage trucks and 2,000 containers. Two shops to process plastic and paper has been already launched. For the first time in the history of the country, the system of separate collection of waste using wet and dry fractions technology will be used in the city. For this reason, 25 garbage trucks and more than 6,000 containers will be installed in all yards until September 2019.
