The Waste Management Plan in Croatia

The Waste Management Plan in Croatia

The Waste Management Plan is based on the circular economy that will enable the development of recycling industry and generate new “green” jobs. Further on, the emphasis of the plan is to respect the hierarchy of waste management, waste prevention, reuse, recycling and composting.

The basis of the new system are recycling centers with sorting and composting of separately collected waste and preparation for recycling.

The plan is consistent with the Waste Framework Directive. It regulates the achievement of objectives in terms of separate collection and recycling of components of municipal waste, as a part of the Plan for the prevention of waste generation. Also, it introduces measures for separate collection at source and selection of waste, as well as it encourages composting of waste in the household and at the local level.
