Householders in Kraków will soon have to segregate their domestic waste – with financial penalites for those who do not participate.
The new scheme comes into force on July 1, with a fresh scale of payments for refuse collection depending on the number of people living in each property. There will be a fixed scale of fees for collection, which will be cheaper for those who separate paper, plastic, glass and metal.
Kraków city council aims to boost the domestic waste recycling rate in the city by 50 per cent, within the next seven years. A statement from the city says recycling has the support of around 66 per cent of Kraków residents – with many already looking for ways to do dispose of segregated rubbish.
Fees for the collection of rubbish will range from 32.50zł (48.50zł for non-segregated waste), for a single person household, per month, to 78.50zł (116.50zł) for households of seven and more. Separate tariffs apply for multi-occupancy homes.
Full details will be circulated via an advertising campaign over the coming weeks, and there is more information and a fee calculator at the city’s waste collection website.
