Recycling – Ljubljana Slovenia

Recycling – Ljubljana Slovenia

In 2004, all waste generated in Ljubljana, Slovenia’s capital went to landfill.  Presently, Ljubljana diverts 80% of its refuse from the landfill. Furthermore, 68% of this waste gets recycled.

Ljubljana won the title of the 2016 European Green Capital award. This was a major win because Ljubljana was the only nominee out of the 5 finalists without an incineration plant.
