Stana Božović, state secretary in the Ministry of Agriculture and Environmental Protection, Radomir Nikolić, mayor of Kragujevac, and Radoslav Matić, head of local waste utility JKP Čistoća, signed the annex of the contract on the construction and equipment of the city’s recycling centre. The project is worth RSD 45 million (EUR 373,300), Kanal 9 TV said.

The construction of the facility is the first step of the introduction of a waste management system, Nikolić said and added the plan is to build two to three such centres on the city’s territory to resolve the issue of gathering, selection and dumping. This is a pilot project, funded by the responsible ministry – from the project design to commissioning, so the City of Kragujevac has no investment, except that the recycling centre will be built on land owned by JKP Čistoća, he underscored.

Božović said EUR 24,500 from the project’s budget will be used for the production of documentation. Matić said the project is already prepared and that some segments of construction already commenced, while it is expected that the construction permit will be issued soon. The equipment will be worth EUR 125,000.
