Vladeta Lučić, Director of PUC "Mladenovac"

Our Streets are Now Cleaner

The Municipality of Mladenovac is one of those included in the projects of the Government of Japan to cater to the basic needs of the population (POPOS) in Serbia, and public utility company “Mladenovac” is among the public enterprises to have received significant financial assistance and support

Thanks to a refuse collection vehicle worth just over €62,000, there has been an improvement in the quality of home waste collection services and the working conditions of PUC “Mladenovac” employees working in the cleaning sector.

You are among the municipalities to which the Government of Japan has allocated certain financial resources to assist in catering to the basic needs of the population in Serbia. How did this come about? Did the Municipality apply, or your company?

Vladeta Lučić– The Government of Japan secured €62,345 for PUC “Mladenovac” as support for improving the natural environment in the Republic of Serbia. Our company is among 12 local organisations that are covered by the donation project, in the total amount of 880,045 euros. We applied independently as a company for the project of the Government of Japan.

I’m pleased that the ceremony to handover the donation was attended by Mr Minori Kiuchi, Japan’s deputy environment minister, and H.E. Junichi Maruyama, ambassador of Japan to the Republic of Serbia, who I was able to thank personally on behalf of our company and the residents of our municipality. I also thanked the citizens of Japan for their donation, which contributed to improving the city’s hygiene and better environmental protection.

The total amount of Japanese aid to Serbia since 1999 exceeds 508 million euros to date

You don’t wait for money to be approved from the municipal, city and national budgets, but rather you strive to secure everything you need for your work by participating in various projects?

– PUC “Mladenovac” secures funds by offering services in the core business areas of the company and by participating in various projects. We are proud that we are successful in securing everything we need for our work.

How much have you been helped in your work by the refuse collection vehicle that was purchased with funds from a Japanese government donation? How important is it when it comes to protecting the environment?

– The combined Iveco refuse collection vehicle purchased from the donation from the Government of Japan is of manifold importance, both to users of our utility services and employees of the company, all with the aim of protecting the environment. This vehicle is seven cubic metres in size and is used to collect waste in narrow streets that cannot be accessed by the large 16-tonne trucks.

Thanks to this vehicle, the quality of household waste disposal services has been improved, as have the working conditions of employees in the cleaning sector at PUC “Mladenovac”.
