18386968_10211484510940870_1593983898_n
The first Croatian RE-USE center has opened in Prelog yesterday. Discarded objects will revive in the center rather than end up in the landfill. This way Prelog and the surrounding region complement the chain of a complete system that has been successfully developed over the last few years according to the recommendations of the Zelena akcija / Zero Waste Croatia. Additionally, the new two municipalities (Belica and Dekanovec) signed a 'Zero Waste' strategy, adopting ambitious targets for separation, recycling and composting and rejecting harmful waste incineration.

Zagreb: European Capital of trash!

04
The city of Zagreb is throwing away about 155 million kuna (about 21 million euros) on the Jakuševac landfill every year. Zagreb could turn that money to profit if only the City provided separate collection of different types of waste deposited there and then selling it on the secondary raw materials market.

Zelena Akcija / Friends of the Earth Croatia is proud to contribute to their success as a national coordinator of the Zero Waste Europe Network and therefore we bring a brief overview of their work and progress in the past year and also invite other cities and municipalities to join them.
