Based on the institutional setup of the Kotayk Project, an integrated solid waste management system of the Kotayk and Gegharkunik Regions will be applied through the establishment of an inter-municipal organisation (company owned by shareholders representing the largest 7 urban communities of Kotayk Region and 5 urban communities of Gegharkunik Region) with the following key responsibilities:

  • operation of regional sanitary landfill in Hrazdan
  • operation of waste collection trucks for servicing the rural communities in the Kotayk Region
  • operation of 2 transfer stations (“TS”) in the Gegharkunik Region (Gavar TS and Martuni TS)
  • operation of waste transfer trucks for delivery of waste from Gavar TS and Martuni TS to the Hrazdan Landfill.


  • CO2 savings
