News / The “O-DVA-JA-MO” project for household waste separation launches in Bela Palanka, Serbia
On 9 November, a presentation of the “O-DVA-JA-MO” Project for Household Waste Separation was held at the Banjica Ecological and Recreational Centre. The project is being implemented in the municipality of Bela Palanka in cooperation with 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 across Serbia by investing in equipment and informing citizens about the advantages of separating household waste for its later successful recycling, and of reducing the amount of waste that ends up in landfills. Bela Palanka is part of the project aiming to establish the primary separation of municipal waste in four regions for waste management – Duboko, Pančevo, Pirot and Srem-Mačva.
The goal of the “O-DVA-JA-MO” Project for Household Waste Separation is to recycle part of the waste generated in households in order to reduce the amount that ends up in landfills, with the aim of increasing the recycling rate in four regions to 15% in the next two years.
