The City Administration for Municipal Affairs of Novi Sad has paused the public procurement procedure for finding a designer of the planned facility for the recycling of construction waste, as it has been determined that the sole bid is unacceptable.
The only bid sent on time is the one by companies Safege from Belgrade and Societe Anonyme Francaise d’etudes et de Gestion Safege from France, the founder of the Belgrade company.
However, the bid was unacceptable on the account of being too expensive. The estimated value of the job is RSD 3.6 million without the VAT, and they offered nearly RSD 5 million without the VAT.
It is assumed that the City Administration for Municipal Affairs will try to find a designer that will meet the requirements in the upcoming months.
Let us remind that this recycling facility of a planned area of 4,700 m2 will be located at the current city landfill, which also features a facility for separation and baling of waste.
It is supposed to collect, treat and dispose of waste more efficiently than before, with sorting, grinding and sifting being applied.
The final product should be able to replace gravel in concrete elements.
This facility will be part of the new planned recycling center, which will cover Novi Sad and the wider area.
