In Transcarpathia, in the village of Yanoshi, preparatory work began on the construction of a waste sorting plant, in particular, all the necessary documents were signed, and 20 units of equipment began to work at the construction site.

The project partners are preparing and agreeing on a Joint Action Plan, which will contain all implementation schedules, the Transcarpathian Regional Council reports on Facebook.

It is noted that the plant will be built as part of the ZeroWaste: Zero Waste project, which is being implemented as part of the Hungary-Slovakia-Romania-Ukraine Cross-Border Cooperation Program (HUSKROUA) of the European Neighborhood Instrument.

The report said that the construction of the waste sorting plant can be monitored online through the installed video surveillance system.

The press service added that at the end of May it is planned

Earlier, EcoPolitic wrote, that in early April, work began in Transcarpathia on the transfer of the construction site of the waste sorting plant to contractors in order to begin preparatory work. The project was started 4 years ago, but for a number of reasons, in particular, the increase in the cost of implementation, the process has slowed down.

As EcoPolitic reported earlier, in November 2021, out of 62 landfills in Transcarpathia, almost half no longer had a place for waste, while others were 85% full. Two more polygons in the region are 80% and 95% full, respectively.
