According to the State Emergency Service of Ukraine, 26 percent of the country’s territory was affected by military operations. Large- scale destruction and, as a result, thousands of tons of waste is a huge problem that will take decades to solve. In most communities, they do not know how to sort this waste, and instead of organized sites for storing waste, spontaneous landfills appear.

The UNDP in Ukraine has been clearing rubble of destroyed buildings for two years and is introducing an entire waste management system. Recently, an innovative station for processing waste that has accumulated in the Bucha community opened in the Kyiv region. UNDP helped organize the work of the station with the support of the European Union. This is the first UN project of this kind in Ukraine; there are plans to introduce such a waste recycling system in other regions of the country.
