The “o-dva-ja-mo” household waste separation project starts in Dimitrovgrad

On October 24, in front of the local cultural centre, the “O-dva-ja-mo” household waste separation project was officially presented to the citizens of Dimitrovgrad, Serbia, in an event organised by the Municipality of Dimitrovgrad and JP “Komunalac”.


The “O-dva-ja-mo” household waste separation project was initiated by the Ministry of Environmental Protection of the Republic of Serbia, with the support of the European Union and the Kingdom of Sweden. The project aims to establish a system for waste separation at the point of origin in 17 municipalities of Serbia by investing in equipment and informing citizens about the advantages of separating household waste, for its later successful recycling thus reducing the amount of waste that ends up in landfill.


In his address, the deputy mayor of the municipality, Zoran Gerov, explained that with the implementation of this project, Dimitrovgrad and other local governments will improve waste management and the state of the environment.

The “O-dva-ja-mo” domestic waste separation project will provide 26 waste collection vehicles and over 90,000 bins and containers, as well as public opinion research and public information campaigns.
