Waste grave candles (WGC) are a special type of waste that represents as much as 3% of municipal waste in the Republic of Slovenia. WGC may not be discarded with communal waste, and due to chlorine content they cannot be utilized for energy production purposes. This is why an efficient system must be established for collecting and processing WGC so that the environmental strain is minimised. For this purpose, ZEOS has established a joint scheme of WGC management, through which we fulfil all the obligations of grave candles manufacturers who believe in us and have entrusted us to fulfil all the legal obligations on their behalf.
The legal basis for WGC management is provided by the Decree on the management of waste grave side lights (Official Gazette of RS, št. 78/2008)
