Agreement signed: Waste Management Centre Lećevica received grant funding for constructio

25.01.2019. Today, EU funding Grant Agreement worth HRK 322.5 million was signed for the construction of the Waste Management Centre Lećevica in Split-Dalmatia County, accounting for 71% of the overall eligible value of the project.

The EU funding Grant Agreement was signed on Friday by Minister of Environment and Energy Tomislav Ćorić, Director of the Environmental Protection and Energy Efficiency Fund Dubravko Ponoš, and acting administrator of the company Regionalni centar čistog okoliša d.o.o. Vlatka Lucijanić-Justić.

“The Fund invested around 5 million kunas in the preparation of the project documentation for the construction of the Centre and 6 transfer stations, while the overall eligible costs amount to the massive 454 million kunas. This project will enable the setting up of a comprehensive and sustainable waste management system in Split-Dalmatia County, applying environmentally friendly technical and technological solutions that are beneficial to human health, the population in general, and tourists as well”, said Director of the Environmental Protection and Energy Efficiency Fund Dubravko Ponoš in Split.

In the following 30 days, the mayor of Split-Dalmatia County Blaženko Boban is expecting that the first tenders will be invited, and that in the course of a year the works will commence. It is planned that the works will take around 18 months, meaning that in mid-2022 Lećevica will have been built.

6 transfer stations will be built in the vicinity of WMC (in Split, Sinj, Zagvozd, and on the islands Brač, Hvar, and Vis). The goal is to establish an integrated non-hazardous waste landfill for the at WMC that will allow remediation and closure of the existing 15 noncompliant landfills in this county that will, as a result, contribute to environmental protection.

Along with EU funding (71%), the remaining part of co-financing will be provided by the Environmental Protection and Energy Efficiency Fund in the amount of 19%, and Split-Dalmatia County with 10%.
