The regional center for waste management “Duboko” near Uzice has started to take over the waste that was taken out of Potpec Lake, for further treatment in the local plant, it was published on the portal of the City of Uzice.
As it is stated, it is not known yet how much waste will be collected, and the takeover started at the request of the Ministry of Environmental Protection.
“Larger waste, wood, logs, is separated at the dam and does not come to our landfill, but will be deposited in Prijepolje and will continue to be used as a firewood cutter,” said the director of the Regional Center for Waste Management Duboko, Momir Milovanovic.
According to him, there is a maximum of five plastic packages in that waste, which suits their company, considering that they bale and sell it, so they will have some financial profit.
He adds that wood waste that arrives with plastic will also be treated.
“This year, we will have a good income from all of the above, with which we will be able to procure some more things. The most important thing is to mention that all the waste that will come from Potpećko Lake will not end up on the body of the landfill “, explains Milovanović.
Milovanovic announced that the works on the expansion of the body of the “Duboko” landfill near Uzice should start by the end of March, if the weather conditions allow it.
“During 2021, at the end of July or August, we will start depositing the first quantities of waste in a new cell (landfill) that will be formed,” said Milovanović.
He added that during the year, the realization of new projects will most likely begin, such as mechanical-biological treatment of waste, a process within which gas will be used from it.
As Milovanović stated, the gas will later be able to be used for the production of electricity.
Floating waste reached the artificial Potpećko Lake, which is located on the Lim River, from various unsanitary landfills located on the shores of that river, which flows through Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia.
The waste has also created major problems for hydropower plants.
The “Duboko” landfill in Uzice works through a cross-border cooperation program, which was established with a company for the same purpose and operates in Tuzla.
Thanks to the “Bulky Waste Management” project, Uzice and Tuzla should soon receive waste shredding machines, “shredders” and 20 containers each.
