Two existing landfills will soon be closed in Black Sea coastal cities of Batumi and Kobuleti and a new landfill will be opened in Tsetskhlauri, 45 km north of Batumi within the solid waste management project of Adjara.
The government of Adjara announces that the project is at the final stage and will ensure the introduction of a modern solid waste management system in Adjara and improve environmental conditions in the region.
The total cost of the project is €7 million and is financed by the European Bank of Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency.
