Construction of a high-quality system of handling waste electrical and electronic equipment in the city of Lviv as based on the experience of the city of Lublin, as well as improvement of the system of waste management in the city of Lublin within the project will lay down a good basis for sharing the experience with other cities and administrative territorial units located in the border area.
