Total Croatia News

ZAGREB, January 31 – Zagreb City Assembly on Tuesday adopted the decision on service standards for the collection of household waste, proposed by the mayor, by 26 votes to 20 and one abstention.

The service standards regulate how recyclable waste and general rubbish will be collected, types of bins, collection frequency and prices for these services as well as fines for non-compliance.

Fines could be imposed (for non-compliance) only after residents sign a declaration saying that they have received appropriate bins and containers for their properties, the city’s economy department head, Mirka Jozić told the council.

Anka Mrak Taritaš of the opposition GLAS party warned that the sorting of waste in households would not be conducted properly as long as residents could haul their waste to the Jakusevac landfill.

Some of the councillors also warned that residents had not be sufficiently informed of how to sort rubbish and that collection of biowaste should be more frequent than once a week, especially on high-rise estates.
