Disposal of hazardous waste
In the budget for 2015 two priority projects for disposal of hazardous waste have been planned and respective funding approved: "Prva iskra" Barič and „ECO-GAS MGS", Šabac.
The state has already allocated 120 million dinars for disposal of 750 tons of hazardous waste from the site in Barič by the end of May. The quantity of hazardous waste inadequately stored in Šabac is approximately 92 tons, and approximately 10 million dinars of this year's budget has been secured for its removal. The hazardous waste located at these sites will be finally disposed of in the course of 2015.
Funding for the project relating to the disposal of waste in Šabac was supposed to be secured through the Environmental Protection Fund. As this failed, hazardous waste remains on the site, which was purchased in the meantime by the company „ECO-GAS MGS" from Belgrade, an is posing a huge environmental problem.
It is because of this that the Company MITECO Kneževac expressed its willingness to participate, in a partnership with other companies, in these and similar competitions organized by the Ministry, and, as many times before, to contribute with its socially responsible business practice to the improvement of environmental conditions in Serbia.
