In total, the population will pay approximately 179.9 billion rubles ($ 2,7 billion). These conclusions were made by experts of the international audit and consulting network Finexpertiza.

The top three most expensive garbage removal services are provided by Moscow (3,062 rubles per person per year) and the Leningrad Region (2,845 rubles), as well as Kamchatka (2,645 rubles). The Amur Region (45,12 rubles per person per year), the Primorsky Region (227.35 rubles) and Dagestan (390 rubles) are in the end of the rating.
