The EBRD is considering providing a €3.5 million sovereign loan to the Republic of Armenia for the construction of the first EU compliant regional landfill and relevant infrastructure in the country.
The landfill will be located in Hrazdan, capital town of Kotayk distrcit in the central part of Armenia, and will be used by eight municipalities in the nearby region - Hrazdan, Abovian, Charentsavan, Yeghvard, Nor Hachn, Tsakhadzor, Byureghavan and Sevan (Participating Municipalities).
The project will require the tendering out of waste collection to the private sector and the creation of a fully commercial solid waste management company (the “Company”).
The project will also include the aquisition of vehicles, bins and equipment for waste management.
Sovereign loan to the Republic of Armenia with on-lending to the Participating Municipalities, which will establish and own the company for solid waste management to operate the landfill.
€3.5 million sovereign loan, which will be on-lent to the Participating Municipalities. In addition, the European Union Neighbourhood Investment Facility (“NIF”) has approved a grant in the amount of €3.5 million to provide co-financing for the Project.
The project cost is €8.07 million, including post signing technical cooperation.
The Project is expected to provide significant environmental and social benefits for the Kotayk Region and Sevan municipality by introducing a modern system for the collection and disposal of municipal solid waste.
Several alternative locations were studied for the landfill site and the site next to the existing landfill near Hrazdan was selected as the preferred site, because it meets the criteria better than other locations. The landfill site and access road to it are located far from protected nature areas, rivers and/or lakes.
Following an assessment of different waste collection alternatives, an ordinary waste collection system including containers/hooting, bring banks and direct transportation of waste for disposal to regional sanitary landfill was recommended by the consultants. Bring banks will form an adequate starting point for the stimulation of waste separation and preparation of the ground for a future dual waste collection system.
The new landfill is designed to comply with national requirements and the relevant EU Directives. Waste will be transported in closed trucks and along the existing roads. The landfill will have a clay and geosynthetic liner for protecting the soil, surface water and groundwater from contamination. The leachate will be collected and treated. The new landfill will have a system for monitoring of gas emissions, groundwater and surface water runoff.
The new landfill will be equipped with all the required equipment. A landfill gas flaring system will be established at the regional landfill after the final cover is installed for the landfill cells.
There is an Environmental and Social Impact Assessment available for this project.
