Summary

Since 2008, the public waste management company replaced ordinary containers in the centre of Ljubljana with underground collection points, thus rationalising waste management and improving the appearance of the city. Glass, packaging and paper can be deposited by anyone, while a card is required to deposit organic and residual waste (available free of charge to all household users living in the area). The project proved to be extremely successful and is often presented as an example of good practice to other cities.
