Proper waste management is very important for environment protection. The idea behind this project is to contribute to protection of the environment and economic development of the border area through more efficient waste valorisation. More specifically, the project is aimed at establishing a system of selective collection and treatment of communal waste in municipalities Plav (Montenegro) and Đakovica (Kosovo).
During its implementation period, it improved waste management in these municipalities. It supported them to establish the system where the communal waste would be separated into dry and wet fractions. Also, it contributed to improving environment conditions in the cross-border area through education and technical support on waste management. Local population, especially children and workers of both municipal utility companies were educated on the newly established system, as well as its contribution to environment protection in the cross-border area.
