The authors analyze the issues of territorial sustainable development in terms of solving the problems of pollution of land plots allocated for housing construction and assessing the possibility of using innovative methods of soil sanitation in depressed areas formed as a result of urban spatial integration that do not have investment attractiveness. The article clarifies and describes the most significant difficulties associated with the growth of settlements in the process of integrating the territories of New Moscow and makes proposals to eliminate the impact of pollution on socio-economic development. The authors propose modern management techniques to eliminate environmental problems in the integrated territory. The article reveals the content of the concept of phytoremediation as an innovative method of pollution control available in municipalities. The results of a scientific experiment on the extraction of heavy metals in depressed areas are described using the example of the Salaryevo waste landfill. The economic advisability of using this method in comparison with outdated ones is disclosed. The proposed innovative management solutions will be useful to specialists of state and municipal services throughout the Russian Federation. In addition, the authors propose for the first time a conceptual approach to consider waste storage sites as socio-ecological systems. This allows for reasonable application of management methods and approaches of system management to them.
