ELS Burgas – Environmentalism in Burgas


Listen to Preslava Stoyanova, talking about the recycling practices in our home city, Burgas, located on the coast of the Black Sea.

The European Union has implemented recycling laws, and Germany has achieved impressive results. Bulgaria has also made progress, with Burgas implementing various recycling programs. The municipality has built an eco-park and mobile centers for recycling different types of waste. However, a research study found that some citizens were dissatisfied with waste collection and cleaning services. Schools have been involved in greening projects, aiming to encourage young people to recycle. Although Burgas generates a large amount of waste, a significant portion is recycled. However, there is a need for citizen discipline and motivation, as well as stricter laws to enforce recycling.
