From the 1st of November a new regulation on waste management came into force meaning that all citizens have to split their household waste and separate it into different waste bins. A three-month trial period has started this new regulation and after this period is over citizens will have sanctions imposed if they fail to comply with the law.
Local authorities now have an obligation to provide citizens with three different garbage containers, from mixed, biodegradable and recycled waste.
In this first three-month trial period local authorities will need to find the best solution for citizens to recycle waste and citizens will need to adapt to the new laws. The Ministry of Environmental Protection has also said that the level of the fine for citizens who do not follow the new regulations needs to be set.
