The Department of Environment's deputy head for legal and parliamentary affairs criticized Tehran's Municipality for its poor management of waste and dysfunctional system of disposal and treatment.
"The waste management law is not observed effectively in Tehran. Tehran's former mayor [Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf] had committed to putting in place a project for waste separation at source by early 2015, under which all the urban garbage would be collected using mechanized equipment to be sent to processing centers for compost and energy production, while fully meeting the sanitary requirements," Karim Shafei was quoted as saying by ILNA.
"But unfortunately the municipality has failed to implement that project, which, it says, is only being piloted in two or three of its 22 districts," he said.
