The City of Sombor has received around EUR 13,600, with a further EUR 3,400 to be set aside from the city’s own coffers, to finance a technical inspection of project documentation for obtaining a construction permit for a regional waste management center.

The future regional center Rančevo will allow Sombor to establish a municipal waste management system that includes minimizing waste generation as well as the control of waste flows and quantities, recycling, reuse, the safe disposal of non-recyclable waste, the closure of existing illegal dump sites, and the production of alternative fuels from waste.

The center will be the first in Serbia to utilize mechanical biological treatment in waste processing

The regional center will utilize mechanical biological treatment in waste processing, making it the first of its kind in Serbia, as well as the wider region, according to a statement on the City of Sombor’s website.

The center is a priority and prerequisite for environmental protection, and its construction will introduce appropriate waste management methods in line with European standards, according to the city authorities.

The funding was granted through the state’s waste management co-financing scheme

The funding is allocated by the Ministry of Environmental Protection through a public invitation for co-financing the introduction of waste management systems in Serbia. The contract on the EUR 13,600 grant was signed in Belgrade by Sombor Mayor Dušanka Golubović.

Sombor was allocated a total of EUR 345,000 for its regional waste management center

In mid-2019, Sombor, along with three other cities in Serbia, was selected to receive a total of some EUR 850,000 from the Green Fund for establishing and developing regional waste management centers, of which Sombor is poised to get as much as EUR 345,000, according to earlier reports.

The other three cities that met the public call requirements are Pirot, Novi Sad, and Nova Varoš.
