The Waste Management Strategy [1] set quantitative targets for waste amounts and waste landfills and recovery and recycling allowances for certain types of waste. Improvement of the separate collection and recycling/recovery systems, increase in population coverage by organized municipal waste collection, and activities related to construction of a number of waste management centres are some of indicators of a progress towards the achieving the set targets. Fulfilling the target that only residual waste is disposed will be greatly contributed by construction of the waste management centres which will provide for adequate treatment of municipal waste and considerably reduce its biodegradable fraction.

The target set by the Ordinance on Waste Batteries and Accumulators management [10] is to achieve:

·         collection rate of at least 25% by 26 September 2012, and 

·         collection rate of at least 45% by 26 September 2016.

The amount of construction waste generated in the 2001-2005 period is estimated at 1,254,152 tonnes, and for the 2006–2015 period the estimate is 2,345,273 tonnes [11].
