A new waste separation, collection and recycling pilot project was launched in the Georgian city of Marneuli last week.

The aim of the project is to assist the Marneuli composting plant in improving the collection of green waste from local residents and municipal institutions.

This will be done by purchasing 30 containers, to be placed in different areas of the Marneuli, as well as 120 bins to be distributed among target residents and kindergartens for the collection of food waste.

The goal is to effectively utilise the green waste that currently goes into regional landfills – approximately 50% of total landfill – as compost, thereby also cutting down on greenhouse gas emissions.

The project was launched by Carl Hartzell, EU Ambassador to Georgia, and Khatia Tsilosani, Deputy Minister of Environmental Protection and Agriculture, as well as local government representatives including the Deputy of the State Representative-Governor in Kvemo Kartli Region and the Mayor of Marneuli.

The pilot initiative was designed and is supported by the EU-funded "Technical assistance for the improvement of waste management systems in Georgia" project, in cooperation with the Ministry of Environmental Protection and Agriculture, Marneuli Composting Plant and the local government.
