Project Overview and Objective


The aim of the project is to establish to Vinni municipality a waste treatment centre which would provide waste treatment service to the whole Lääne-Viru County and where would take place reception of municipal and dangerous waste, secondary sorting of waste already collected by type, pressing and packaging of waste and forwarding it to resource recovery, landfilling or incineration.

So far, the generated waste was mostly placed to the Ussimäe landfill which was closed on June 16, 2009, due to the non-conformity with the requirements. The nearest (75 km) landfill which is in compliance with the requirements is the Uikala landfill. In the county, there are several waste collection points where certain wastes of different type are collected. In essence and according to the extent of their service, they are only waste collection sites which do not meet the needs of the county enough. Waste sites as such (according to the criteria set in National Waste Management Plan) are located only in Tamsalu and Väike-Maarja. Therefore, the network of waste collection sites does not cover the whole county. Local municipalities but lack financial resources for building proper waste sites. Thereby, the waste treatment centre would help to develop the reuse and recovery of wastes in Lääne-Viru County.
