We encourage and promote waste management

HUGO is short for “Hrvatska Udruga za gospodarenje otpadom” in its original form or “Croatian Association for Waste Management” in English. We promote and encourage sustainable waste management and application of practical knowledge. HUGO wants to strengthen regional and local capacities through knowledge sharing and joint activites in the field of waste management.


The association creates a platform of stakeholders who share their experiences and knowledge in the field of waste management. We operate through scientific and professional symposia, thematic workshops, round tables, monthly newsletters from the International Solid Waste Association (ISWA).
