In line with the plan Slovakia should set priorities for addressing environmental burdens, based on which decontamination should be carried out.
Slovakia wants to reform the system of separated waste collection, while landfill fees should be gradually increased and limits on collecting mixed municipal waste should be introduced. An amount of EUR 216 million is set to be allocated for a circular economy.
The government should adopt a strategy and a road map for the transition to a circular economy, which should take place in 2022.
