Bulgaria’s Environment Minister Ivelina Vasileva will cut the ribbon on a new waste management system in the northwestern city of Vidin ON Tuesday afternoon.

The site was built with funding provided under operational program Environment 2007-2013, according to a media statement of the Environment Ministry.

The system, which will service over 95 000 people from 11 municipalities, includes a municipal landfill with a capacity of 309 600 tonnes, as well as composting facilities and construction waste recycling units.

The old municipal landfill has been closed and the site has been cleaned up.
