BG16M1OP002-2.005 Design and construction of composting plants for separately collected green and / or biodegradable waste in Vratsa region
The aim of the project is to build a composting plant for separately collected green and biodegradable waste of the Municipality of Vratsa and the Municipality of Mezdra in RSUO Vratsa. The construction of this installation will contribute to reducing the amount of landfilled municipal waste in the Regional Landfill for Non-Hazardous Waste in Vratsa by providing additional capacity for separate collection and composting of green and / or biodegradable waste.
The proposed site for construction of the facility is located on the territory of the Municipality of Vratsa in the area of Shumaka, P.I. 12259.788.9 in the land of the town of Vratsa and occupies part of the allotted property, in which there is an operating regional landfill for municipal waste – Vratsa region, its area amounts to 101915 sq.m.
The site has built infrastructure and does not need to build a new one.
The following facilities are planned for construction and operation:
– composting plant with a capacity of up to 8,000 t / year.
– introduction of a system for separate collection of green waste, including containers with a capacity of 1.1 cubic meters (574 pcs.) and 4 pcs. garbage trucks.
With the construction of the composting installation, the operational life of the landfill for municipal waste will be extended by significantly reducing the annual quantities of landfilled waste.
The target group of the current project proposal are the residents of the municipalities of Vratsa and Mezdra.
Social acceptability requires that waste management systems meet the needs of the local population. In this regard, the implementation of the project will improve the quality of life of the local population of the two municipalities by introducing sustainable mechanisms for environmental protection and familiarizing the target groups with the various aspects of waste management. The focus of the project is on the possibilities for separation and utilization of green and biodegradable waste, raising environmental self-awareness and changing people’s behavior.
