The changes should be reflected in waste reduction, but mainly in a reduction of landfill rates, the ministry believes. We know the first details.
The current law on waste disposal fees represents an administrative burden on the part of municipalities in obtaining funds from the Environmental Fund from fees for waste disposal at landfills and waste disposal sites.
It also contains provisions which, for example, do not allow the quantities of small construction waste to be included in the formula for calculating the level of municipal waste sorting when recovery of small construction waste is ensured.
However, this should change in the near future. The Ministry of the Environment of the Slovak Republic (MEES SR) promises to reduce the administrative burden on municipalities as well as to amend some other legislative provisions.
This follows from the preliminary information on the draft amendment to the Waste Disposal Fees Act, which the enviroresort has submitted for comments (a link to the full document can be found at the end of the article). The public can send their suggestions until 10 November at the latest.
Changes will help reduce landfill rates, says MoE
The Ministry claims that the main objective of the planned amendment to the legislation is to reduce the administrative burden of providing financial support from fees for waste disposal to landfills and tailings dumps.
The amendment of the law aims to increase the sorted collection of municipal waste. It also hopes to improve the conditions for obtaining the contribution for the sorting rate by adjusting the counting of small construction waste.
"The changes in question, in terms of their environmental significance, should be reflected in a reduction in waste in general, but mainly in a reduction in the rate of landfilling," the environment ministry believes.
