First RE-USE center in Croatia and 2 new zero waste municipalities! Wed, 10 May 2017 14:00:59 +0200 http://zelena-akcija.hr/en/programmes/waste/first_re_use_center_in_croatia_and_2_new_zero_waste_municipalities 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.
