Sarajevo, 07.09.2016. - Today is performed the official handover of the first underground eco-island in the Sarajevo Canton, which is the beginning of a new approach in the waste management that is developing in the last 20 years in European countries.

Ministry of municipal economy and infrastructure will finance the purchase of commercial vehicle worth 200,000 KM, and PUC "Rad" Sarajevo will carry out the construction work for setting up an eco-island and regularly emptie containers and collected packaging waste prepared for recycling.
