A new campaign for the collection of hazardous waste from households will be held in Veliko Tarnovo. A mobile station will be located on February 24 and 25 in the big districts of Buzludzha and Kolyu Ficheto. In each of the two days, its working hours will be from 10.00 to 16.00. In the Buzludzha district, the checkpoint will be located in the parking lot in front of the neighborhood market on February 25, and on the next day it will be located in the Kolyu Ficheto district – in the parking lot on Simeon Veliki Street – opposite Mall Veliko Tarnovo.
Anyone can dispose of the following types of waste: expired medicines, contaminated packaging, mercury thermometers, fluorescent tubes, cleaning agents, disinfectants, chemicals, pesticides, oils and adhesives, obsolete electrical and electronic equipment; use of batteries and accumulators; obsolete tires. Organizers of this campaign are the Municipality of Veliko Tarnovo and Balbok Engineering AD. The campaign is the first in a series of actions for the collection of hazardous household waste, planned in 2022.
The fee for household waste in the municipality of Veliko Tarnovo is increased from 1.2 to 1.7 per mille on the tax assessment of the property from 2022. The proposal of the administration was adopted at a meeting of the Municipal Council yesterday.
There will be a relief for households that introduce separate waste collection. The rates in the region have not changed for 10 years, but in the meantime the amount of the minimum wage has increased at least three times, and for the next year higher costs are expected in connection with the increase in electricity, fuel and water, which requires an increase in the garbage fee as well.
Eco Partners Bulgaria AD starts the implementation of a solution of the type “smart containers” for separate collection on the territory of Veliko Tarnovo. The organization relies entirely on innovative technological solutions, showing its high commitment to environmental issues and in particular to waste from packaging.
Eco Partners Bulgaria AD is the organization for recovery of packaging waste, which organizes the separate collection in the Municipality of Veliko Tarnovo. The company has already signed a contract to build the new system, which will cover color containers. The smart innovation is expected to be fully operational early next year. This will support the waste management process and is expected to improve the overall condition and vision of urban spaces.
