The Solid Waste Management (SWM) Programme, supported by Sweden, was launched in February 2010. The goal is to improve the quality and availability of solid waste services in selected municipalities, and thereby contribute to integrated solid waste management in the country. The total budget for the programme is 10 Million Euros and the Programme has almost reached the 5th year of its duration.
The municipalities that signed contracts today with the provider are 6 from F BiH, namely Breza, Fojnica, Ilijas, Kiseljak, Kresevo and Vares, and 5 from RS: Istocna Ilidza, Istocno Novo Sarajevo, Istocni Stari Grad, Pale and Trnovo. During 2013 these municipalities participated in a comprehensive capacity building programme and prepared municipal waste management plans to be implemented during the coming years. With Swedish support, more than 16,225 households will have improved waste collection system, and the collected waste will be disposed of at regional sanitary landfills. To accomplish these intentions, the municipalities now signed contracts for supply of waste collection trucks, waste containers and bins.
In total 44 municipalities and 6 regions are engaged in the programme in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
