According to environmentalists, ecological situation in the Russian Federation persists as a negative trend showing no signs of improvement. Accumulation of industrial and consumption wastes, which tends to increase every year, seems to be the most problematic issue today. The Russian waste treatment technologies considerably lag behind those in the developed countries where about 90% of waste is utilized. This article addresses sectoral and regional aspects of waste management and presents estimated amounts of generated waste calculated with the use of a dynamic model of intersectoral balance. Calculations have shown that to reduce waste generation rate by a factor of two, it is necessary to increase the share of waste processing and neutralization up to 70% (in 2016 it was 59,6%). Catching up with advanced nations does not seem feasible during the projection period. The article focuses on the priority importance of processing industrial waste which storage requires alienation of large areas of agricultural land.
