The unsanitary landfill “Osaonica” in Trstenik has been rehabilitated and recultivated after 30 years, and municipal waste at this location will now be disposed of in accordance with standards.

Minister Irena Vujović, together with the president of the municipality, Milena Turk, visited the landfill in Trstenik and stated that the ministry she leads has allocated funds for the closure, rehabilitation and recultivation of the old landfill and the construction of a sanitary cassette, and the total value of the investment is 77 million dinars.

“Today, we can make sure that municipal waste from Trstenik is properly disposed of at the sanitary landfill, which is also equipped with a plant for processing leachate. The municipality will dispose of waste at this location until the conditions are met for Trstenik to join the regional waste management system, the construction of which is planned in Kraljevo in the future,” said the minister and pointed out that solving the issue of waste management throughout Serbia is one of the priorities. because such projects are not only important for environmental protection, but also for the quality of life of citizens.

She reminded that in the previous two years, numerous illegal landfills were cleaned, and several unsanitary landfills throughout Serbia were closed, rehabilitated and recultivated. As she stated, unsanitary landfills represent decades-long ecological problems in Serbia.

“Solving the issue of the Osaonica landfill is one of the most important green projects, but not the only one that we implemented in Trstenik. Thanks to good cooperation with the local self-government, last year we implemented a greening project at 26 locations in this municipality. We also removed large amounts of historical waste from the former First Five-Year Plan, and this year we are also co-financing the last phase of the rehabilitation and land protection project near the source. Our goal is to encourage and support the implementation of green projects, because this raises the quality of life and improves the ecological image of cities and municipalities throughout Serbia,” the minister concluded.
