The Official Document passed by the former Belgrade Municipality on August 1, 1884 provides for the collection of charges for garbage removal, which day has been taken as the date of founding the PUC "Gradska čistoća."

The basic operations of the PUC "Gradska čistoća" include upkeeping of the public areas, removal of refuse and garbage and their dumping. The Company is responsible to remove minor dumping areas, as well as bulky refuse and vehicle wrecks. The scope of the "Gradska čistoća" Company responsibilities covers 10 Belgrade Municipalities, including almost a half million of households, and covering over 25 million square meters of housing and more than 13 million square meters of office/commercial area. The Company employs around 2200 permanent employees and about 470 part-time employees.

The employees and plant/equipment regularly clean 2250 City streets, the area of which amounts to about 16.5 million square meters. Only 1.3 percent of drinking water from the water distribution piping is used for washing the Belgrade streets and it starts as soon as the outdoor temperature exceeds 40C. The area washed by means of water tanks or hydrant network covers about 13 million square meters of the public areas. The "Gradska čistoća" Company collects and dumps approx. 1200 tons of garbage. Nowadays, Belgrade has only one dumping area at Vinča, which has been in use since 1977. Although the dumping area covers 65 hectares, thus being the largest one in Europe, it is insufficient for Belgrade.
