The Government of the Netherlands financed the establishment of a waste transfer station in Koceljeva in Serbia’s west with EUR 750.000, aiming to promote sustainable development in the country. The facility was opened by the municipality’s officials and the representatives of the Ministry of Agriculture and Environmental Protection and the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.

The transfer station will help the town in the country’s west in primary selection and it marks the beginning of organized waste management in the area, municipality head Dušan Ilinčić said at the ceremony, as quoted in a press release. He stressed there is still a lot of work to solve the problems of citizens living nearby.

“Our future activities include providing a vehicle for the local waste collection service, rehabilitation of the existing informal landfill in Koceljeva and the development of Kalenić, complete regional system for waste management, in the municipality of Ub,” said Aleksandar Vesić, assistant minister for agriculture and environmental protection.

Recycling means economic benefits for all the people involved in the process, new jobs and new ways to improve local services, ambassador Henk van den Dool said.

On the same day, a project of primary waste separation that includes distribution of 800 garbage containers for households was presented.

Intergovernmental development organization International Management Group (IMG) will implement the project of the construction of a recycling facility in Bajina Bašta financed by a EUR 175,000 donation from Sweden, according to a contract signed last month. Also in March, regional waste management system Duboko, adjacent to the city of Užice in Serbia’s west, got backed up by a recycling centre and transfer station in nearby Čačak.
