It was precisely with this goal in mind that the National Park Krka emphasized once again that in the area of the "Krka" National Park disposal of all types of waste is strictly prohibited outside the designated and marked places
That's what he orders Ordinance on the protection and preservation of the Krka National Park, but also our conscience. Plastic discarded in nature will take five hundred years to decompose, as well as cans, and organic waste, cotton and paper will decompose in six months at most. When we talk about a karst area such as the "Krka" National Park, the danger is all the greater when decomposed waste gets into the porous soil and then, through the underground network, into the water.
That is why it is very important to dispose of waste in designated places. All medium or larger waste that appears in the household should be disposed of in an appropriate manner.
"In order for the area of the "Krka" National Park to remain preserved in its originality, unscathed by negative human influence, we kindly ask the local population and visitors not to throw waste into nature, and the competent services to report any inappropriate disposal of waste, so that, in cooperation with the municipal services of the cities and municipalities that gravitate to the Park, reacted in time, removed the waste and discovered irresponsible individuals who committed the offense, which, according to the Nature Protection Act, is dumping waste in nature. For this reason, the nature guards of the "Krka" National Park can issue fines , and in order to further protect nature and cover as large an area as possible, video surveillance was introduced in the Park area, " they state from NP Krk and add that in order to remove and dispose of this type of waste, he can contact the municipal service, which will schedule the free removal of such waste or instruct how to dispose of the waste in an urgent manner.
Through long-term actions and active communication with the local population, the Public Institution "Krka National Park" strives to deepen awareness of the importance of responsible waste management with the aim of preserving the environment, nature and planet Earth. Also, in NP Krka every year they participate in The green purge, a joint one-day action to clean up illegal landfills, the largest volunteer eco-project in Croatia, which brings together active citizens and organizations, and is part of a large global action World cleanup, launched in 2008.
