HUF 17.5 bln regional waste management program completed
A HUF 17.5 bln waste management program largely funded by the EU, has been completed in the Mecsek-Drava region of southern Hungary and will affect 426,000 residents in 313 towns, according to Hungarian news agency MTI.
Approximately 70% of the 200,000 tonnes of waste produced in the region will be recycled and the remainder will be disposed of according to EU regulations thanks to the program, project manager Péter Merza said. Earlier, more than four-fifths of the waste was disposed of in depos, he added.
