The project’s actions combine both regional (centralized) and local (decentralized, separation-at-source) actions in accordance with the strategy laid out of Local and Regional Waste Management plans in the area and aim at reducing the volume of waste going to land filling (indic. target rate for the recovery of the organic fraction of solid waste in the Greek part of the area being 20% by 2018, when the project ends).
