  1. Small and medium-sized recycling companies lack financial and technical capacities to improve their business
  2. Poor working conditions for (informal) waste workers
  3. Lack of public awareness on how to deal with plastic waste

This project enhanced plastic recycling capacities in Serbia by transferring operational expertise and professionalising waste workers from vulnerable groups. In addition, media campaigns improved the awareness and knowledge about waste reduction and segregation among Serbian and Bosnian citizens.
