The Minister of Environment and Water Neno Dimov and the Mayor of Yambol Municipality Georgi Slavov signed today a contract for the construction of a composting installation. The project will build a facility with a capacity of 2 400 tons per year for the processing of separately collected green and biodegradable waste on the territory of the municipality. The facility will serve nearly 70,000 inhabitants.
The total amount of the investment exceeds BGN 3.7 million. The Operational Program "Environment 2014-2020" provides grants amounting to more than BGN 2.5 million. The implementation period of the project is 19 months.
The project is in line with the waste management hierarchy and with European and national targets for the phased reduction of the amount of biodegradable municipal waste destined for landfilling.
