In this country, almost 98% of waste is ignored. The system is best established in South Korea, where no more than 2.5% of plastic waste is lost.

According to the authors of the report, 220 million tons of new waste will appear in the world this year. So, in Russia, about 3.1 million tons of plastic will not be recycled or sent to landfills for storage. Most of them will pollute the soil and reservoirs.
