Larger volumes and are located below ground level and above is only a place where garbage is collected. In addition to significantly higher capacity has beautiful outdoor ambient look for urban settlements. I hope that this new approach to take hold as they already have in other cities, “said Babic.

The result is a beautifully landfill that has a number of advantages. There will be no other stray animals that carry the trash . we are trying to do this since the end of last year, but we encountered problems with underground installations and places where you can set up because it requires a lot of places over. we are working to be placed in the center of town where there is no container, “said Konaković.
