Recently, the experts of Civil Voice NGO recorded cutting trees in the adjacent green area of the dump of Saralanj in Abovyan.
It was obvious that the trees that had been cut were healthy and thick trees. The number of cut trees ranged about 100. It’s surprising and incomprehensible how the Environmental Protection and Mining Inspection Body of MNP of RA has not recorded such a massive tree cutting. We believe that our alarm will cause the inspection body to investigate the problem, to find and punish those responsible, and prevent such acts.

In Armenia the problem of dump is still up-to-date. It can be said that all the dumps are uncontrolled in Armenia. Most garbage dumps are ignited, causing serious problems (air pollution). At present, alarms from the different regions of Armenia are regularly heard about the poor condition of dumps. So, after one of such alarm, the experts of Civil Voice NGO Silva Adamyan, Shahen Khachatryan and the representative of the organization Naire Sahakyan were in Abovyan city.
There is a huge amount of garbage in the Saralanj side of Abovyan city, which sometimes is burning, spreading smoke and unpleasant odor to neighboring areas. Particularly, the garbage burning is very dangerous in summer which can be uncontrolled and make damage to the environment.
Coming closer to the dump, we witnessed a terrible scene: stink, dump, a large number of rodents and birds. In the territory of Elar village we recorded a huge garbage dump in the natural gorge, which was adjacent to dwelling houses. There was a gas filling station adjacent to the dump. As the local residents told us there were more than 3 such a huge dump in Abovyan city.
Recording the current situation, Civil Voice NGO is going to apply to the relevant authorities to solve the problems.

From the very beginning of the activity of the company, the residents of Abovyan city complained of the dust and the unpleasant odor. After receiving a call on this, the experts of Civil Voice NGO, for several times, visited “AM-Eska” for getting acquainted with the problem.
During the visits, the experts of Civil Voice NGO noted a dust and unpleasant smell in the factory and adjacent areas, and told on this situation the Ministry of Nature Protection of RA, the Environmental Protection and Mining Inspection Body of MNP of RA and Prime Minister of RA. While contacted with the management of “AM-Eska” LLC , we’ve been informed that they’re going to place the fence in the area of the factory for preventing the spread of dust, also to clean the territory, to technically replenish new reagents and so on.
On 9th of March the experts of Civil Voice NGO Silva Adamyan, Shahen Khachatryan and the representative Naire Sahakyan had another unexpected visit to “AM-Eska” LLC for recording the work that have been done.
