Regional Centre for Municipal Waste Management „Halovo“

Zaječar, Serbia

(17.11.2018)

Serbia has made progress in the development of a legislative framework in the field of waste management by harmonizing existing laws with current EU legislation. The Serbian legal framework for waste management is driven by the Law on Waste Management, officially established in 2009 and the Amendments to the Law on Waste Management (2016).

According to National Waste Management Strategy, establishing 27 waste management regions in Serbia for the purpose of municipal waste management is regarded.  The collection of MSW in the Republic of Serbia is done by Municipaly owned Communal Companies and predominantly based on the collection of mixed waste. The proportion of the population falling under an organized collection system in Serbia is around 60–65%.

Municipalities in Eastern Serbia (City of Zaječar and the municipalities of Majdanpek, Negotin, Kladovo, Bor, Knjaževac and Boljevac) agreed to cooperate on municipal waste management and have signed the Joint Municipal Waste Management Agreement in 2014. They have established Joint Coordination Committee in order to lead the Project implementation. Regional Development Agency Eastern Serbia - RARIS manages the Project implementation, and performs tasks for the Coordination Committee in cooperation with the competent services of the signatories of the Agreement and the relevant ministries.
