The path to Sustainable Waste Management in Bosnia and Herzegovina

PIN Bosnia and Herzegovina

Bosnia and Herzegovina faces a pressing waste management crisis that poses grave risks to both the environment and public health. The country's inadequate waste management system is characterized by poorly managed toxic waste, underdeveloped and overflowing landfills, and an alarming proliferation of illegal dumpsites. In Sarajevo Canton alone, citizens dispose of an average of 1.25 kg of waste per day, contributing to the annual generation of approximately 1.2 million tons of municipal solid waste in the country.
