A Toxics-Free Future


Vrbovec Waste Project

Using waste management best practices modelled after those in the EU, Zelena akcija developed and implemented a pilot waste management program with a variety of activities involving local community organizations, government officials, and public citizens. These activities included creating a re-use center featuring a small scale recycling and composting program, generating awareness about waste management and landfill use through community workshops, hosting site visits to local landfills, monitoring and evaluating the pathway of recyclables from residences to landfill, and conducting an assessment of a city recycling program. Although no specific waste management policies have been put in place, this program was successful at instilling citizens with education and tools to move the country forward.
