Founded in 2017 by Zero Waste Montenegro, Cleanup Montenegro is an informal network of NGOs and civil society organizations. Its primary aim is to engage civil society in mitigating waste pollution and curbing waste generation across Montenegro. With over 18 members currently, the network continues to expand, welcoming new members onboard. Actively engaged in communities from the coast to the mountains, we believe in the power of collective action and the impact that individuals can make when they come together for a shared cause.


Cleanup Montenegro aims to engage and support citizens and local non-governmental organizations in actively addressing waste management issues, promoting awareness through cleanup initiatives, events and educational workshops, with a focus on reducing waste production and littering for a cleaner Montenegro.
