IMPORTANT FOR MUNICIPALITIES – CLOSURE OF LANDFILLS PROJECTS

Regarding the announcement for submission of projects for closure of landfills that do not comply with the requirements of the legislation, the MA of OPE specifies that no call for proposals has been opened yet for such activity. Project proposals should be accepted not until the opening of this procedure, which shall be announced on the OPE website - www.ope.moew.government.bg, on the Unified information portal for management of the EU Funds - www.eufunds.bg, and at least in at least one national daily newspaper.

This announcement is made in connection with the MA's initiative for having the latest information regarding the municipalities' readiness for submitting projects for closure of landfills. The Managing Authority invites the municipalities to send such information to the e-mail of the OPE: ope@moew.government.bg.

The Indicative Annual Working Programme foresaw the procedure for Technical assistance for preparation of projects for closure of municipal landfills that do not comply with the requirements of the legislation, to be announced in May 2009, and the procedure for closure of municipal landfills - in September 2009. The delay of the first one is due to the necessity of legislation changes in the Spatial Planning Act, namely the inclusion of the "closure and rehabilitation of landfills" as a category in this Act, as well as in the Ordinance No 1 of the nomenclature of the constructions kinds.
