Waste Management

Generally, in accordance with the EU and National legislation, municipalities in Slovakia are obliged to follow strict rules for waste management. The main aim is to protect our environment by collecting, separating and processing materials and substances (such as liquid body waste, glass, or cans).

Facing newly arising challenges Ivanovce village has implemented a very effective plan for waste disposal and recycling. Initially, the plan has been properly communicated to the local population with the aim to better understand nature of the imposed procedures. Waste management has not only a positive effect on environment but it also has a significant economic impact on both, the village and its citizens. Generally, waste is divided into different categories that allows a more effective disposal and recycling of the collected waste:

  • Household waste (Municipal solid waste) is collected in containers (black colour). Every household (house and/or flat) receives a container of various size and it is their responsibility to manage effectively produced waste. The Waste Pickup Service is available once in two weeks.
  • Dealing with organic waste, each citizen is strongly encouraged to recycle various organic materials. For this purpose, composters are offered for free to compose food and garden waste. After some time, gardeners receive an additional benefit as organic waste in composters is turned into manure by microorganisms.
  • Separate containers are placed throughout the village to collect paper waste (blue colour), plastic waste (yellow colour), metal waste (red colour), glass waste (green colour), and carton waste (orange colour).
  • Twice a year, there is an opportunity to dispose bulky items which are too large to fit into a normal collection container (such as mattresses, appliances, furniture, demolition waste, and hazardous waste).

IT IS VITALLY IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND THAT EVERYONE OWNS RESPONSIBILITY FOR ENVIRONMENT AND THEREFORE, PROPER MANAGEMENT OF PRODUCED WASTE SHOULD BE OUR INDIVIDUAL CONTRIBUTION TO PROTECT NATURE AND ENVIRONMENT FOR NEXT GENERATIONS.
