The plan contains over 70 specific measures aimed at improving the waste sorting system, the construction of waste management centres and the closure and rehabilitation of landfills.

It also includes a plan for the prevention of waste generation, in line with the Europe 2020 Strategy, which is focused on the transition from a linear to a circular economy that provides sustainable management of resources.

The plan is required due to the infringement procedure against Croatia, launched by the European Commission (EC) on 24 September.

Proposed by: Ministry of Environment and Nature Protection
