Novi Sad and 7 municipalities to get a EUR 100mn waste management facility

The EU Delegation to Serbia has launched a call for the submission of bids for the planning and construction of the Regional Waste Management Centre in Novi Sad, which includes a sanitary landfill of a capacity of close to 1,209,000 m3, as well as the planning and construction of two transfer stations with all the required buildings in the municipalities of Backa Palanka and Vrbas.

The Regional Waste Management Centre, in addition to Novi Sad, will also encompass the municipalities of Backa Palanka, Backi Petrovac, Beocin, Zabalj, Srbobran, Temerin and Vrbas.

The project will be financed by the European Union with EUR 60 million and the Serbian government with EUR 40 million. The deadline for submission of bids is September 5.

As announced earlier, this waste management facility will become operational in 2026. The regional waste management system will ensure the primary selection of waste by providing containers for “dry” and “wet” waste. “Dry” waste is plastic, paper, cardboard and similar recyclable matters, whereas “wet” waste is biodegradable waste. Also, a special container will be provided for glass waste.

Furthermore, all the municipalities in question have to build recycling yards, Novi Sad as many as three, where the residents can dispose of all types of waste to the specially designated areas by themselves.
