Start date: Apr 30, 2011, End date: Dec 30, 2012 PROJECT  FINISHED 

sting illegal waste deposits at 20 Hungarian and 63 Romanian municipalities along the riverbanks of the Túr/Tur, Kraszna/Crasna, Szamos/Someş, Berettyó/Barcău and Sebes-Körös/Crişul Repede rivers, the Clean Rivers Project aims to serve as a good example in the prevention of future pollution in this area. In addition, 83 collection containers will be placed to partner settlements and emptied twice a month for a year ensuring that less or no waste will pollute these rivers and their surroundings. Each partner municipality will receive a Waste Management Action Plan, which will help them in mapping out local waste development opportunities.In order to quantify the results of the waste elimination and placement of the containers, laboratory tests of water samples will be performed. The test results will be used to raise awareness among locals, providing them information about the activities performed, the location of waste containers and several methods to prevent, reduce and collect municipal waste.
