Local councils win HUF 7 bln in EU funds for waste management

An association of local councils in the region north of Lake Balaton has won more than HUF 7 billion in European Union funding for a waste management system, the association's head János Czaun said on Wednesday.

Czaun said HUF 4 billion of funding would be used to establish a selective waste collection system and HUF 3.4 billion would go toward reclaiming landfills. The system affects some 300,000 residents, he added.
