Tallinn got rid of the waste disposal company Baltic Waste Management, which won several tenders for waste removal, but could not cope with the work.
Since the end of last week, Tallinn Recycling Center (TJT) has been removing waste in Nõmme . "We have to state that BWM did not handle its job there (in Nõmme and in the 10th Lasnamäe neigbourhood), and it was replaced by TJT," - said a.i. mayor Taavi Aas.
"The data of the last days from Nõmme shows positive results. The situation is improving. I do not dare yet to say that everything is fine, but the situation has definitely become much better. And I believe that over these days it will be possible to to be done with the waste removal from Nõmme ," - he added.
Aas noted that BWM was recognized as the best provider of the service as a result of several tenders, but taking into account the problems with this firm that arose in Nõmme and Lasnamae, the mayor decided that the contract for these supplies will not be further prolonged.
"This company has not coped with its work. BWM was successful in Haabersti and Kristiine. If to exclude this firm, the best offer in these areas was made by Jaaksoni Linnahooldus. So far, it was bought by Eesti Keskonnateenused (EKT). We are waiting for the signing of the contract with the EKT. And if EKT and Ragn-Sells had previously stated that they felt they had been driven out the waste removal market, now EKT has a good opportunity to prove that they are still interested in disposing waste in Tallinn. I think, now itis time for them to present themselves," - said Aas.
"Communication with customers has become better, mail processing is functioning, customer service is accepting calls and the number of complaints has decreased. This gives us confidence that we are coping with our work," - Tiitso said.
