Minister says 90% of funds for Bikarac waste management centre secured

Environmental Protection Minister Mihael Zmajlovic said on Monday that 162 million kuna or 90% of the total value of the investment in the construction of the Bikarac waste management facility had been secured from EU funds and the Croatian Environmental Protection and Energy Efficiency Fund.

The total investment is worth HRK 180 million and the rest will be secured by Sibenik-Knin County where the facility is located and the city of Sibenik. Of the total amount, 71.37% came from EU funds and 18.63% from the Croatian Environmental Protection and Energy Efficiency Fund. The centre will be managed by the Bikarac company which invited construction companies to apply for building the facility in July.
The centre is expected to be built by the end of 2017 and it will solve waste management needs for approximately 110,000 residents of that southern Croatian county.
Minister Zmajlovic recalled that Bikarac was one of the 13 centres that Croatia planned to open this year.
