During its session today, the Council of Elders of Yerevan decided to increase the staff of Yerevan Garbage Disposal and Sanitary Cleaning community institution and approved the new staff list.
The item on the agenda was presented by Deputy Mayor Hayk Sargsyan, who noted the following: “Taking into consideration the fact that Sanitek Armenia and Sanitek International aren’t fulfilling their contractual obligations to provide services in the entire administrative territory of the city of Yerevan, the garbage disposal and sanitary cleaning services in the twelve administrative districts of Yerevan will be provided through the Yerevan Garbage Disposal and Sanitary Cleaning community institution. Taking into account the fact that the volume of services of the institution covers the entire administrative territory of Yerevan, a need has emerged to adopt the draft of the submitted decision, which proposes to increase the institution’s staff list. There are a total of 647 units in the list, and the monthly budget is AMD 161,000,000.”
The deputy mayor noted that, overall, the funds to be allocated for garbage disposal and sanitary cleaning under the municipal budget will not exceed the funds that were allocated to Sanitek under the budget in previous years.
When asked if the 150 janitors of the institution will be able to clean all parts of Yerevan, Hayk Sargsyan said those 150 janitors will mainly be cleaning yards and that Sanitek had never organized cleaning of yards.
