As a result of comparative analysis of statistical data on the amount of waste and storage areas in the territory of the Volgograd region, it is revealed that to date, there is an increase in the share of used, recycled wastes in the total volume of generated production and consumption wastes. However, the regional waste management system does not ensure a complete clean-up of the territory and effective implementation of activities in this area. The Volgograd region is characterized by significant anthropogenic pressures on regional components of the environment, which are caused by intensive activities of many industrial enterprises and transport. The main trends observed in the sphere of waste management in the region are a steady increase in the volume of waste generation, followed by their placement in landfills and unauthorized dumps; pollution of the environment with industrial, communal and agricultural wastes. There are practically no capacities and technologies in the region for the involvement of waste in economic circulation. The identified peculiarities and problems in the organization of waste processing actualize the need to develop the measures on improving the waste management system in the region: the combination of direct and two-stage waste removal, the exclusion of storage of unsorted waste at landfills, the reconstruction of container sites and the development of a container and garbage park, the construction of waste sorting/garbage processing complexes, in connection with the increase in the volume of production and consumption wastes, which remains one of the main environmental problems in the Volgograd region.
