Promotional film Nature’s Classroom 2009

The amounts of municipal waste are growing, which is becoming a serious problem in a number of local communities. We went to Poljčane to tape a report and see how successful municipal waste collection is and how disposing waste into containers at ecology points for separated collection of waste is going. Dr Janja Klinčar from the Environmental Research institute Slovenske Konjice showed us a new system for separated waste collection, which is supposed to start operating in Poljčane next year.

Video report

Video transcript

In Slovenia and, comparatively, in the project area of the Municipality of Poljčane, on average 451 kg of municipal waste was produced per capita in 2009, meaning 1.2 kg per capita per day. Statistical data shows that the amounts of municipal waste are increasing and that it is becoming a problem for a number of local communities. In the Municipality of Poljčane they have therefore initiated a project of “minimising municipal waste and informing the public”. The current system of waste separation is designed so that mixed municipal waste is collected from households and that “eco islands” for separated waste collection are set up.

Dr. Janja Klinčar, Environmental Research Institute Slovenske Konjice: However, our observations show that these eco islands are overflowing and that the waste isn’t properly separated. If we look at an actual example –containers for paper and packaging are missing here. We see that the bin reserved for glass is full with packaging waste, no trace of glass, while the bin for other types of waste is mostly filled with glass.

That is why an upgrade of this system is being planned, a source-point separation of municipal waste packaging in households through the “yellow bag” system (door-to-door), which is supposed to be implemented in the Municipality of Poljčane at the end of April or at the beginning of May next year.

Dr. Janja Klinčar, Environmental Research Institute Slovenske Konjice: This means that each household will be equipped with bags or bins – depending on the arrangement – for separating all waste packaging. Past experience shows that people respond well because they are aware that the current situation is not good and that something has to be done.

Survey: It wouldn’t be bad if people would separate waste. I also do it. Not everything goes into the same bin. – I believe it’s the right way, because I already separate waste. I carry it to the island, which is far from my home, but I do it regularly, twice a week. – We’ve been separating everything for a long time and helping to preserve the environment.

The Municipality of Poljčane expects a reduction of mixed municipal waste mass by 35 % and an increase in recycling by 50 %. At the same time it wants to reduce the waste handling costs and raise the level of public information and environmental awareness.
