In the scope of the project “The responsibility for waste is also mine” roundtables on the subject of waste management are held in Knin, Drniš, Sinj and Imotski from August 26 to 29. The roundtables encourage conversation and cooperation of citizens and all institutions and companies involved in the planning and establishment of sustainable waste management system.
