EU-Serbia : Waste standards must improve (1 videos)

Four-fifths of the waste generated in Serbia ends up in landfills, legal and illegal, and only about 15% is recycled. This is a serious ecological and economic problem. The first steps in raising the level of recycling have been done, but the situation can be significantly improved only once the system for garbage sorting is established in every household – still a long way to go. Filmed in “Gradska cistoca” Belgrade, recycling operator SEKOPAK, relevant ministries in Serbia; in Belgium with communal companies, citizens, operators etc.

This report is part of a special project Accession challenge, aimed at exploring main topics of Serbia' onngoing membership negotiations.
