3. In the private sector, stoves are heated with plastic and rubber
In the private sector of Yerevan, stoves are installed in the houses, but not all residents have enough money for firewood. Therefore, everything that comes to hand goes into the furnace: boxes, polyethylene, tires, old rags. Is it necessary to talk about how this affects the environment? It is not surprising that Yerevan is constantly included in the ratings of the most environmentally hazardous cities for life (including by the number of oncological diseases).
Right in the city, next to the Nurabashen sleeping area, which is 10 km from the center, there is a giant dump. Periodically, it also burns, poisoning the already not joyful existence of the inhabitants of this part of Yerevan. Garbage not in the central areas is taken out irregularly: bins can stand full for several days, attracting rats and homeless animals.
5. Insufficient landscaping
In the heat of summer, it is especially noticeable how Yerevan lacks trees. Local residents say that developers – both official and private – as well as firewood hunters at one time exhausted a lot of trees in the city. As for modern squares, there is very little greenery with lush crowns.

< h2>6. Poor infrastructure
Yerevan is not created for pedestrians and cyclists. Wide roads, few pedestrian crossings and safety islands, a long wait for a green signal of traffic lights, many narrow sidewalks, dozens of cars abandoned at random on the side of the road, bike rental points can be literally counted on the fingers of one hand. Public transport is called another trouble in Yerevan: the buses are old and uncomfortable, especially in the heat; and some routes are still run by well-worn Gazelles. /f550x700/5a/31/5a31l1rf6cw8c4084gk8s8c4k.jpg” media=”(max-width: 549px)”>
