MOSCOW, November 18, /ITAR-TASS/. This year Russian citizens will have an opportunity to inform the authorities about illegal waste-landfill sites via the Internet, Russian Minister of Natural Resources and Environment Sergey Donskoy told a meeting of the Environmental Public Council on Monday.
“The interactive system called Our Nature is being tested at the moment. It will allow people to inform the Russian authorities about unauthorized disposal of waste using a geo-data portal and a mobile application,” Donskoy said, adding that the system would be officially presented at the IV All-Russian Congress of Environmental Protection, held at the Crocus Expo International Exhibition Centre in Moscow on December 4.
Donskoy stressed the importance of attracting people to actively participate in detecting illegal dumping. During the last nine months alone, more than 18,000 illegal waste-landfill sites of different scales were revealed with the help of Russian citizens, he said, noting that 14,000 of them were eliminated.
