SID, January 30, 2017 – The public utility companies (PUCs) in charge of keeping Sid clean, are now able to do their job more efficiently.  Through the “Enhancing Local Resilience to the Migration Crisis” a $1.3 million project, funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), and implemented by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the municipal PUC “Standard” received ten large containers for solid waste, and the PUC “Vodovod” improved its car pool with a new liquid waste cleaning truck.  

The new equipment will ensure better service for 35,000 Sid citizens, public institutions, local businesses, and the three Reception Centers in the municipality. 

Through the project, the UNDP is working with experts to identify the most urgent municipal infrastructure needs to prepare for, and create a better response to current and future emergency situations.  The purchase of the waste management equipment delivered today with an estimated value $83,700.00 was recognized as a top priority for Sid PUCs.

In cooperation with the Ministry of Public Administration and Local Government and the Commissariat for Refugees and Migration of the Republic of Serbia, “Enhancing Local Resilience to the Migration Crisis” works to improve the lives of local populations and migrants and ensure sustainable development of Subotica, Kanjiza, Sid, Bosilegrad, Dimitrovgrad, and Presevo municipalities.
