A waste recycling centre worth EUR 2.4 million was opened in the town of Žabljak. The construction of the facility, which includes a transfer station, was equally funded by Montenegro and Slovenia, the Government of Montenegro said on its website.

Prime minister Milo Đukanović and Slovenia’s foreign minister Viktor Erjavec attended the ceremony. The two officials expressed satisfaction with a number of infrastructure projects in the municipality of Žabljak, located in the country’s north. The works are organized in cooperation with the Slovenian government.

The implementation of the project was supported by Slovenia’s Centre for International Cooperation and Development and it was part of bilateral cooperation between the two former Yugoslav republics, Đukanović said. He reminded Slovenia invested EUR 3.4 million in Žabljak.

Erjavec pointed out the ecological importance of the endeavour and how such projects reflect excellent cooperation between the two countries. The project also demonstrates new ecological developments in the field of waste management, he added.
