Active people from Zajezova (especially Igor Chyra) had been managing a project of the collection of separated waste in Pliesovce and its surrounding villages for almost 15 years. When in 2009 the project ceased the question what to do with the waste in Zajezova remained. Thanks to the initiative of the local inhabitant Rado Planicka and the civic association Community for Life in Harmony Zajezova received support for the establishment of collection units for separated waste. The project was financially supported by the Tesco Foundation and the municipality of Pliesovce. Later new containers were bought by some inhabitants from their own money.
In a another project, the „cleanup of Zajezova“, every year illegal waste dumps that were created in the past are spotted by children from Zajezova and Pliesovce and are cleaned up by volunteers.
