Balıkesir’s Coasts Will Stay Clean with Advanced Biological Treatment Plants

The advanced biological treatment plants, the foundations of which were laid in Balıkesir, will be opened next year within the framework of the action plan put into practice after the mucilage problem in the Marmara Sea two years ago.

18 strategic targets, 43 main activities and 130 sub-activities determined by the Ministry of Environment, Urbanization and Climate Change, and coastal municipalities and governorates for the Marmara Sea, which has been declared a "special environmental protection area", are continuing. Within the scope of the "Marmara Sea Action Plan", the construction of advanced biological treatment plants that will serve 175 thousand people in Bandırma and 62 thousand people in Erdek, started by the Balıkesir Water and Sewerage Administration (BASKİ), continues.

22 percent of the facilities built with the support of the Ministry of Environment, Urbanization and Climate Change, as well as the European Union Support Project (IPA2), have been completed. 

Environmental problems on the Marmara coast will be prevented with the inauguration of the facilities, which include the infrastructure and sewerage plans of the districts, and which are planned to be completed in April next year.

“Water Shouldn't Manage You, You Must Manage Water”

In his statement to the AA reporter, BASKİ General Manager İzzet Günal said that Balıkesir has a coastline of 175 kilometers to the Aegean Sea and 115 kilometers to the Marmara Sea.

Emphasizing the importance of treatment plants, Günal said: "The advanced biological treatment plant in Bandırma has a capacity of approximately 25 thousand cubic meters, it will serve to 175,000 people per day. The facility in Erdek, on the other hand, has a capacity of 8,700 cubic meters and will serve 62 thousand people per day. Water shouldn't manage you, you must manage waterThis is possible with the right financing, the right project and the right team, and we are at the point where we will come to a conclusion. Hopefully, the projects will be implemented by April of next year. 

“We Need to Protect the Environment”

Günal stated that the capacity of the wastewater treatment plant in city center of Balıkesir will also be increased.

Emphasizing that they produce electrical energy from solid wastes in the facilities, Günal concluded his words as follows: "We want to create a healthy environment that takes firm steps towards the future. Hopefully, with the realization of the projects, our city will make great gains in this regard. In other words, we need to protect the environment. If we do not do this, the environment takes its revenge on those who use it. We have seen this with an example of mucilage, we also see it with flood disasters, the problems we experience related to weather, climate change and drought. Let's take care of today so that our future generations can take care of tomorrow.”

Projects Protecting Nature from the Metropolitan Municipality

Thanks to the "Zero Waste Project" initiated by Balıkesir Metropolitan Municipality, 35 tons of waste batteries have been collected so far, preventing the pollution of 7.7 million m³ of land. Citizens who have contributed greatly to this environmental movement in the last year were rewarded by Mayor Yılmaz.

Balıkesir Metropolitan Municipality has launched a 'Waste Battery Collection Campaign' to prevent environmental pollution, reduce environmental risks, contribute to the circular economy and have a sensitive consumer sense, in order to prevent and recycle waste batteries in nature with zero waste practices within the scope of the "Zero Waste Project". A ceremony was held at the Salih Tozan Culture and Art Center to reward the citizens who participated in the 'Waste Battery Collection' campaign launched in 2022. In the Waste Battery Collection campaign organized by the Metropolitan Municipality between 2014 and 2022, 35 tons of waste batteries were collected and the pollution of 7.7 million m³ of land was prevented. In the campaign organized in the last year, 5 tons of waste batteries were collected and recycled and disposed of. Balıkesir Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Yücel Yılmaz rewarded 46 citizens who participated in the campaign in 2022 with tablets, bicycles, reversi, penny banks and roll chess.

A ZERO WASTE CULTURE IS FORMING IN THE CITY

Balikesir Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Yücel Yılmaz stated that each battery thrown into nature poisons 4 m³ of soil and can pollute 600 thousand liters of water, which is enough to fill one third of an Olympic pool and said; “I would like to thank everyone who contributed to the waste battery campaign, glad to have you. In order to leave a more livable world to future generations, we are making an intense effort to place the 'zero waste' culture in every aspect of life. We carry out many projects with our volunteers to raise social awareness on this issue. We launched the 'bring the oil, take the food' project, which contributes to both recycling and feeding stray animals. In addition, with the 'zero waste in the kitchen' project, we provide trainings on the separation of waste from the kitchen and its reuse by turning it into fertilizer. We are spreading the zero waste movement, which started in our house, to the whole of our city by growing in waves. Through the 'zero waste in the field' project, we both prevent the pollution of our soil and increase the quality of the products."

'ZERO WASTE STREETS' IN EVERY DISTRICT

Emphasizing that they separate the wastes at the source thanks to the Zero Waste Streets, Mayor Yılmaz said, “We reduce the amount of waste that goes to trash and increase the recycling rate. Through the 'waste-free island project', we made Ekinlik Island, which is connected to the Marmara district, Turkey's first and only waste-free island. But most importantly; we need to learn not to pollute and to keep it clean. This city is our home… Let's all take care of this city as well as we do to our home. You are doing a favor for Balıkesir by separating your waste batteries. Please remember that a clean city is our right. I would like to thank each and every one of you individually for your support to our zero waste campaign and congratulate the 46 environmental volunteers who received the award.”

I hope that the Children's Village, where there are many options from vocational training to trampolines, from balloons to running parkour, will be beneficial to our city again. Not only our children living in the central districts, but also many children from our districts and surrounding provinces came here and they are having fun.

Metropolitan's Vehicle Fleet is Getting Stronger Every Day

Balıkesir Metropolitan Municipality continues its rational investments that prepare the city for the future. Mayor Yücel Yılmaz, speaking at the commissioning ceremony of 16 tractor trucks that have just joined the vehicle fleet to be used in the transportation of domestic waste, emphasized that they will earn a public benefit of 4.5 million TL per month thanks to the vehicle purchases they have made since 2022.

Balıkesir Metropolitan Municipality, which adds a new one to its investments and services that will add value to the city with each day, continues its works. Balıkesir Metropolitan Municipality, which invests not only in today but also in the future with rational investments, continues to expand and strengthen its vehicle fleet. In this context, the commissioning ceremony of 16 tractor trucks to be used in the operation of transporting domestic wastes carried out by the Environmental Protection and Control Department was held. Ömer Munis, AK Party Altıeylül District Head, Hasan Avcı, Mayor of Altıeylül Municipality, Şaban Akkol, Deputy Mayor of Karesi Municipality, Celal Sürgeç, Mufti of Balıkesir and related personnel attended the ceremony. The Metropolitan Municipality, which has implemented many investments and projects with its sensitive approach to nature, people and every living creature that lives on it, will not only ensure that domestic wastes are transported in a healthy way, but also save 4.5 million Turkish Liras every month by purchasing these vehicles.

62 MILLION OF VEHICLE INVESTMENT FOR WASTE TRANSFER

The Metropolitan Municipality started to carry out the waste transportation operations, which were carried out through service procurement from 2014 to the end of 2021, by renting vehicles and equipment as of 2022 within its own structure, it has invested approximately 62 million Turkish Liras on 30 trailers, 1 dumper trailer and 2 tractor trucks purchased last year and the vehicles currently in service.

4.5 MILLION PUBLIC INTEREST WILL BE PROVIDED MONTHLY

Speaking at the ceremony, Balıkesir Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Yücel Yılmaz said that as the Metropolitan Municipality, their main goal is to make Balıkesir a sustainable city where people live in harmony with nature. Mayor Yücel Yılmaz emphasized that while they strengthen the city with investments in line with this goal, they also increase their institutional capacity and service quality and said; “We are strengthening our vehicle fleet with the effort to become a self-sufficient institution. We started to carry out the waste transportation operations, which were carried out through service procurement from 2014 to the end of 2021, by renting vehicles and equipment as of 2022 within its own structure. In this context, in 2022, we purchased 30 trailers, 1 dumper trailer and 2 tractor trucks. In addition, by adding 16 tractor trucks to our vehicle fleet, we are starting to carry out the transportation of domestic waste entirely with our own resources. Doing this with our own resources means a monthly saving of 4.5 million TL and means public interest. If we had continued this operation with service procurement, we would have spent 8 million TL every month as the Metropolitan Municipality. We reduced this cost to 3.5 million with the system we established. If we had continued this operation with service procurement, we would have spent 8 million TL every month as the Metropolitan. We reduced this cost to 3.5 million with the system we established... The total cost of the vehicles we added to our fleet is 61 million 452 thousand liras.”

We increased our rehabilitation and reclamation amount, which was only 157,850 m³ in 2019, to approximately 3.5 million m³. While the amount of energy produced in 2019 was zero, we are now producing 40,100 megawatts of energy annually. While our landfill rate was 60% in 2019, we have now reached 100%. As the Metropolitan Municipality, we carry an average of 1,100 tons of waste per day. We supply the energy needs of 50 thousand households with the energy we produce from these wastes we carry. We are writing a success story in Balıkesir for the environment, for people and for the future. Balıkesir will be the shining star of the country in the Century of Türkiye. I wish our new vehicles to be beneficial and auspicious for our city, and I greet you all with respect.”
