The tender was carried out by operator Eesti OU Fixdem Latvian branch.

Construction and demolition waste was sorted and the hazardous waste – asbestos – was utilized in the landfill, but bricks and reinforced concrete were crushed, removing the metal fractions by the magnet. These components were used as a secondary building material for strengthening of foundation of squares and roads in the town. Degraded territory was putted in order – trees and bushes were removed, potholes were filled up, as well as waste was collected and utilized.

There an innovative method of phytoremediation for the treatment of contaminated soils adapted to local climatic conditions will be used – in the spring will be arranged planting of specific plants.

The aim of local municipality is to attract investments. Therefore this regenerated territory should be formed for needs of investors, as well as included in economic turnover, reducing previous negative impact on surrounding properties and visual image of the town.
