The leadership of the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia for the Magadan Region signed an agreement with the Ministry of Construction, Housing and Communal Services and Energy of the Magadan Region for the production and supply of a batch of containers for the accumulation of solid municipal waste.

Convicted prisoners of strict regime colony No. 4 have started to fulfill the order. The production process was organized at the metalworking section of the Center for Labor Adaptation of Convicts. The workers are provided with everything they need – from metal to special equipment. Within the framework of this contract, they have to manufacture more than 380 containers. Thanks to the receipt of the order, 10 convicts were additionally employed.

The service life of metal containers is at least five years. They are covered with a special paint that is resistant to aggressive environments.

Pavel Shapiro, head of the department for the management of municipal solid waste, visited the institution and personally checked the quality of the already made tanks. During the visit, they discussed some issues on the further production of garbage containers.

Production activities in correctional institutions of the Magadan Region are aimed at providing convicts with jobs and their further re-socialization. The acquired labor skills will definitely come in handy after release. In addition, the employment of the special contingent makes it possible to pay off claims under orders of execution from harm caused to victims and alimony obligations.
