In 2021, two competitions were traditionally held in the South Bohemian Region – the regional competition South Bohemia Sorts Waste 2021 (15th year) and the South Bohemian District Waste Competition 2021 (9th year). The first competition is further divided into 4 categories according to the size of municipalities and cities. In the second competition, as the name already suggests, municipalities and cities compete in sorting waste within the individual districts of the South Bohemian Region.

All 592 municipalities, towns and cities of the region involved in the EKO-KOM system were automatically included in these competitions. The organizers calculated the results of the competition from quarterly reports on the total amount and types of sorted waste, which municipalities regularly send to the aforementioned system. The total yield in all basic commodities, i.e. plastic, paper, glass and metals calculated per 1 inhabitant, was evaluated. Competing municipalities received further plus points in the supplementary assessment for non-container paper collection, for separate collection of clear glass, for collection of beverage cartons and for ensuring a sufficient and accessible collection network (i.e. for how many inhabitants of a village or city does 1 average container nest serve) .

“I offer my hearty congratulations to all the award winners in the competition of the municipalities of the South Bohemian Region in waste sorting. At the same time, I wish them a lot of joy, strength for their future work and thank them for setting an example for other municipalities on the next path to improving our region.” said the first deputy governor Talíř. At the same time, on this occasion, he remembered the time when he lived in Italy. “That country is beautiful, almost like southern Bohemia. But the difference is precisely in the waste management. Because there in certain regions you can come across mountains of garbage and that’s not the case here. Which fundamentally changes the quality of life, for the better for us, of course,” said the Plate. At the same time, he highlighted the importance of this competition. “I see this mainly as a motivation for other municipalities, who see that waste sorting really works and brings concrete results. Therefore, I will be happy if they also actively participate in this project in the following years, and the South Bohemian Region is ready to lend a helping hand to everyone if they are interested.” emphasized the first deputy governor.

IN category up to 499 of inhabitants, the municipalities placed in the South Bohemia sort waste 2021 competition Chamomile, Non-prison and Kubova Huť. The first two named municipalities received the award for 2020 in the same order.
