Kaposmenti Landfill Recultivation Program - Second part of the project
KEOP 2.3.0./2F/09-2010-0003

Dear Visitor,

In the previous decades of centuries people often depended on the rules of the environment and assigned his economical ambitions to it. Now when it becomes difficult to find fresh and clean air or healthy environment nowadays in our Earth, it is important to implement projects with a special attendance on environmental protection, sustainability and recycling.

The Kaposmenti Municipal Waste Management Association was established to take steps in the field of environmental protection. The Association recultivated 28 landfills in 2013 with the financial support of the European Union and State of Hungary. Thanks to that now you can find green hills instead of dirty trash hills. But we still have a lot to do! In our current project we will recultivate 36 more landfills. The planning process is finished, implementation started in this October, and will be finished in November according to our plans. To the best of my belief, that our project will contribute to a cleaner, healthier and greener environment in Kaposvár and its surrounding.

Kind regards,

Károly Szita

Dear Visitor!

One of the most important question of our life is how to handle our resources provided by our Earth. We can just live up our nature’s treasures and simply drop it away after, or we can be conscious and recycle as much waste as we can with the help of science to use them again and again. We tend to forget that our most significant resources are the human mind, knowledge, and wisdom, and our ability to cooperate and live for the community.

This knowledge incorporates in the ZALAISPA Waste Management Association founded by 281 member municipalities. In case of this project consortium we can continue the recultivation of 11 landfills started in our previous project. Thanks to the current situation of science we have the knowledge to preserve the clean environment and beauty nature of West-Balaton and the cove of River Zala.

Kind regards,
