During the year the company acquired more than one hundred trucks and other equipment, but the company's own sorting and landfill for disposal she is no waste. According to first deputy general director of "MKM-Logistics" Andrei Komarov, the company is already looking for a site for sorting and recycling. And it continues to cooperate with subcontractors.

Business runs like clockwork. Under the contract with Moscow for the collection and disposal of tons of garbage "MKM-Logistics" received 3200 rubles. The company is exporting household waste landfills in the Moscow and pays for their burial, the average tariff in a radius of 55 km from Moscow - 400 rubles per ton.

The ambitious player could not, etc.n walk past debris Moscow, in October 2013, "PT-Invest" announced its intention to take part in competitions for removal and disposal of waste in the four administrative districts. But instead of applications for participation in competitions "RT-Invest" steel structure pile Competition Commission complaints properly executed documents. The team with the support of Shipelova "Rostec" wanted to get involved in a big game, but suddenly refused to take part in competitions. "We saw that the tender documentation is not integrated into future amendments to the existing legislation, and decided not to submit applications," - explains the vague hissing. "RT-Invest" have something to do, and besides waste, although it is in this area made the largest investment. According Shipelova, the company develops IT-solutions for the air transport and information and communication systems.
