Modern methods for management of organic waste in Prespa
Modern methods for management of organic waste in Prespa
The Prespa region produces from 50.000 to 70.000 tons of apples depending on the year. Due to various reasons (restricted apple market, inadequate marketing, etc) significant quantity of the apples production ends as waste usually disposed in the river of Golema Reka.
The main project objective is to reduce the negative impact of organic waste (apples) on ground and in the water and at the same time to reuse organic waste as compost. This is to be achieved through:
Soil assessment in the areas near the river of Golema Reka, where usually organic waste is disposed,
Organizing round table and educating local population on practical methods of collecting waste,
Undertaking practical steps by constructing and placing/ donating composing units/bins to interested local apple producers.
Organizing public campaign on using organic waste and composting.
