Most of the waste from this site is residues from boat sanding operations and polluted soils, the evacuation and / or treatment of which will make the site viable for future use. Other sensitive waste consists of asbestos, scrap metal, miscellaneous OIW, as well as hydrocarbon derivatives. VALGO is in charge of the first phase of depollution of the site with the management and the treatment of the primary sources of pollution.

To carry out the works, a team of 35 people was mobilized, in collaboration with local companies. VALGO experts will accompany Montenegrin experts from local companies in this project through the training and transmission of their know-how in the field of pollution control of polluted sites and soils. The creation of these jobs and the establishment of partnerships between VALGO and the local actors make it possible to work for the economic development of Montenegro.
