Results of the Rosselkhoznadzor’s
activity in agricultural lands inspections in order to identify cluttering,
dumps and refuse tips
Almost 3000 illegal dumps were detected on 4500 ha of agricultural
lands by Rosselkhoznadzor’s Local Administrations.
1667 dumps were formed on 2300 ha by municipal
self-governments due to their failure to fulfill responsibilities to organize
collection and disposal of household waste and garbage according to Russian
Federation Federal Law No. 131-FZ of October 6, 2003 ” General principles of
organization of local self-government in the Russian Federation”. 660 dumps on 409,5 ha were formed by
citizens, 30 dumps on 1,6 ha
by horticultural cooperatives, 620 dumps on 1740 ha by other persons. Rosselkhoznadzor’s
Local Administrations imposed fines amounting to more than 20 million rubles
and issued 2365 orders by these facts.
1426 illegal dumps were undone
due to performance of Rosselkhoznadzor’s orders to eliminate the violations of
land legislation. About 1500
ha of agricultural lands were put in use.
