ZAGREB, September 20, 2020 – Over 100 junk cars have been removed from the southern national park island of Mljet as part of a campaign carried out this past week by the environmental group Zelene Stope in cooperation with their island hosts.

It was part of a nationwide campaign, called “Let’s clear Croatia of junk cars”, which has been carried out for 16 years by Zelene Stope, car maker Renault and the CIOS waste management company.

To date, more than 16,000 abandoned old cars have been removed from the country’s national parks and nature parks, including 500 from Mljet island.

Over four days last week, more then 100 junk cars were discovered on Mljet and ferried to the mainland free of charge. These were apparently the last wrecks and the mayor, Djivo Market, said that this could be the last such campaign on the island.
