Victories and key actions
- In 2019, the Czech Government accepted our legislative proposal to increase landfill fee with specific discounts for municipalities which meet a high recycling ratio. If this legislative proposal will be accepted in 2020 by the Czech Parliament, there will be quite big economical support for better separation of municipal waste in the Czech Republic.
Main focus and objectives
- Work to keep our proposal for sorting discounts from increasing of landfill fee in new waste law.
- Advocate for deleting the landfill ban for waste from the proposed waste law.
