«It is high time to step up work to reduce those levels, especially in the cities of Nur-Sultan and Almaty,» the Prime Minister added.

He also ordered to look into the problem of construction disposal sites as the number of illegal landfills in the regions is becoming alarming.

«… there are no construction disposal sites in the country and I order the Ministry of Industry together with the Ministries of Ecology and Finance to develop a draft project of a municipal solid waste site,» said Askar Mamin, adding that extra construction disposal sites are needed in the regions of Kazakhstan.
