Brief background on the waste situation in Kyrgyzstan.

Institutional framework for MSW management Currently, Tazalyk is the monopoly provider of waste collection and disposal services in Bishkek. The market share of Tazalyk is 87.0% in the commercial customer segment and 92.1% in the residential segment. There is no formal sorting of waste taking place in the city. Waste sorting is carried out by informal players at various stages of the supply chain, from the waste collection points to the dumpsite.

Waste generation About 1.5 million m3 of municipal solid waste is generated in the city annually, about 220 thousand tons of waste per year. Waste pickers within the town take some valuable materials from the waste at collection points, but the waste in collection trucks was analysed and still contains 28% of valuable recyclables: At present, a proportion of this is collected by the informal sector working on the Bishkek Authorized Dumping Site (BADS), but a larger proportion of this material could be separated and sold through a municipally owned sorting system. Current recyclers in Bishkek confirm that they want to receive increased quantities.

Current waste collection services There are two systems for MSW collection in Bishkek: ▪ About 50% of the population (those living in multi-storey buildings) are served using waste containers at collection points in the city.

 About 50% of the population (those living in private homes) bring their waste in bags directly to Tazalyk waste collectors on given days of the week There are about 1,200 waste collection points in the city the majority of which are equipped with standard, wheelless 0.5 m3 metal containers. 1.1 m3 euro containers are also used in some places. An assessment of collection points throughout the city took place and showed that

▪ 4% of the containers need immediate replacement

▪ 51% of collection points lack any containment

▪ 22% of collection points partially lack or have a damaged containment.

The next step for Energeco Group is to start a JV with local players in mid-April, carry out a small pre-study and seek funds from various sources.


The WBG will coordinate its activities with other development partners with the overall objective of assisting the Kyrgyz Republic to attain the SDG goals.

To enhance the impact of the sizable external assistance that the country enjoys and avoid duplication of effort by donors, the WBG will use its convening power to consolidate these efforts around major reforms and play an active role in donor coordination.

The WBG has already established partnerships with the ADB, EADB, EBRD, IsDB, EU, GIZ, DfID, JICA, Switzerland, USAID, and other development partners through co-financing and parallel financing of investment operations in the energy, transport, health, social protection, water supply and sanitation, and water resource management.

The WBG closely coordinates its program with the IMF, EU, and ADB and will work in coalition with them to support reforms.
