Basic information

- Waste Management Region with the Regional Waste Management Center Indjija was established pursuant to the Law on Waste Management stipulating the obligation of municipalities to dispose of their waste in the regional landfill.

The project for waste management and construction of new Regional Sanitary Landfill - Indjija and includes seven municipalities Indjia, Stara Pazova, Ruma, Sid, Irig, Pecinci and Sremski Karlovci. The Waste Management Region covers six municipalities of the Srem District (Indjija, Stara Pazova, Ruma, Sid, Irig and Pecinci), plus one municipality in South Backa District (Sremski Karlovci - geographically is part of Srem). The total population of the Waste Management Region is 250 000 (Indjija - 49,000 inhabitants; Stara Pazova - 67,800 inhabitants; Ruma - 55,754 inhabitants; Sid - 35,500 inhabitants; Irig - 11,100 inhabitants; Pecinci – 20,300 inhabitants and Sremski Karlovci - 9,500 inhabitants). Contracts have been signed with seven municipalities of the Waste Management Region for disposal of waste at the Regional Sanitary Landfill – Indjija.

Indjija Municipality by mutual consent of other six municipalities of the Waste Management Region formed a Public Utility Company (PUC) for waste collection and disposal and landfill maintenance “INGRIN“ Indjija. PUC “INGRIN“ Indjija will manage the construction and operate the future Regional Sanitary Landfill. Indjija Municipality is 100% shareholder of PUC "Ingrin" which currently has three full-time employees (all of them hold a university degree).

Regional Sanitary Landfill Location

A land lot designated for constructing the Regional Sanitary Landfill for disposal of municipal waste is located in the proper of Indjija Municipality, between Beska and Novi Karlovci, 8 km north-east from of Indjija in the vicinity of highway E-75 Belgrade – Novi Sad.

The size of land lot for constructing the Regional Sanitary Landfill is 26.75 hectares. The distance of other six municipalities from the landfill is: Stara Pazova - 18 km; Ruma - 32 km; Irig - 27 km, Sid - 94 km, Sremski Karlovci -26 km:  Pećinci - 31 km.

The land lot has been provided by the Indjija Municipality (it is 100% owned by Indjija Municipality).

Access road to the Regional Sanitary Landfill has been constructed including the new overpass at highway E-75. Access road has a total length of 8 km and all infrastructure (electricity, water, sewerage, postal services).

The total estimated capacity of the landfill (compacted waste plus inert material) is 2,723,827m³. Based on the estimated volume of municipal waste generated in the region (currently around 100,000 tons per year) and based on designed capacity of the Regional Sanitary Landfill in Indjija, its anticipated life span is 26 years.

The construction will be implemented in 6 phases, with the Phase I being implemented currently.

Upon the completion of the Phase I, it will provide for the disposal of waste during the period of 5.5 years.

The total estimated initial investment to complete the construction of Phase I and to provide equipment for the Regional Sanitary Landfill, including the separation line and composting facility, amounts to EUR 11.74 million (1.45 million for the first phase of the landfill body, 7.01 million for infrastructure, installations, property and equipment, 2.94 million for the land, E 340 000 for project management, design, supervision, and contingency).

For construction of the remaining five phases, closing down the landfill, replacement of vehicles and upgrading the separation line, additional investment of EUR 12.9 million is needed. This investment will be implemented over a period of 20 years upon the expiration of operation life of the landfill Phase I.

From what has been said, it follows that the total investment required for implementing the Regional Sanitary Landfill project is around EUR 24.6 million.

The total of EUR 3.6 million has been invested so far in the construction and provision of the following:

•         Landfill Phase I (2 cells, full isolation, gases collection, macadam roads, etc.)

•         Turing areas, parking areas and roads built inside the landfill complex,

•         MBTS 630 kVA substation, electric installations and 400V diesel generator,

•         All landfill infrastructure,

•         Protective wire fence around the landfill site,

•         Protective green belt - around 1,000 seedlings.

Missing funds it is estimated that around 6 million euro is needed for completing the Regional Sanitary Landfill Phase I, for the following:

-   Waste separation - building and facility

-   Wastewater treatment – building and facility

-   Structures at the landfill entry,

-   Machinery – bulldozer, compactor, loader, telehandler, skid steer loader, dumper truck).


Public-Private-Partnership – there is a possibility for provision of the missing funds through public-private partnerships, or capital increase by the interested investors, in accordance with the Law on Public-Private Partnership and Concessions (Official Gazette no. 88/2011 of 24.11.2011).
