We have received reports from several residents of the hamlet Raškovići near Knin on the Green Phone due to a collapsed bridge over the river Butižnica.

Three years later, the idea was, under the name of Green phone, realized in Zagreb, at the Green Action association.

The City of Čakovec and Međimurje County are one of the leading in Croatia when it comes to a separate classification of waste.
