New recycling fee rates will be introduced in Kazakhstan starting from May 14. This was reported by the Ministry of Ecology, Geology and Natural Resources. Thus, the coefficient of payments for cars and agricultural machinery was diminished twofold. Now the rate totals slightly more than 150,000 tenge. The amount of the recycling fee itself is calculated depending on the engine size, and will vary from 200,000 (US$465.98) to one million tenge (US$2,329.92). The previous rate remains in force until the middle of this month.
