Seven environmental groups endorsed the draft 2016-2022 Waste Management Plan which the Ministry of Environment and Nature Protection presented for public hearing, according to a report by the Croatian Association for Energetics published on its portal Croenergo.eu.

Environmentalists stressed how strengthening the system for separate collection at recycling centres helps local industry and create conditions for new green jobs.

The statement submitted to the media was signed by association Eko breza, UZOR – environmental organization from Resnik, Krizni eko stožer Varaždin, association Eko Zagreb, civic initiative Koprivnica kakvu zaslužujemo (Koprivnica that We Deserve) and association Okoliš.

According to the article, the non-governmental organizations emphasize how minister Slaven Dobrović quickly introduced a waste management plan which complies with all directives of the European Union and is focused on the introduction of the bloc’s circular economy concept and environmental standards.

They also pointed out the draft of waste management plan should bring the most benefits for the communities and companies engaged in recycling and recovery because Croatia is importing 180,000 tonnes of recycled plastic from the EU per year.
