Development and implementation of innovative model for reduction of plastic waste from land-based sources is a pilot project run by Beloslav Municipality in partnership with Green Industry Innovations and International Development Norway.
The purpose of the project is to establish an alternative system for recycling of plastic waste based on the Precious Plastic principle. A separate waste collection system solely for plastic will be introduced and a mobile station for recycling of the collected litter will be created. A dedicated municipal centre will coordinate the process, which will rely extensively on the citizens’ active participation. Trainings, information and awareness raising campaigns will also help for the project to achieve its outcomes: less plastic waste in the sea and gained Norwegian experience.
International Development Norway will assist the municipality by sharing experience and best practice on establishing the model.
