Waste Management

In compliance with EU directives, all European Union member states – including Greece – by 2011 must recycle 55-80% of packaging material and reduce organic urban waste by 25% through composting processes. This latter figure must reach 50% by 2013 and 65% by 2020.

Greece is not in a position to fulfill these legislative requirements since it lacks the necessary infrastructure, a fact that has given rise to commercial opportunities in this particular sector, which continues to have considerable room for growth, with the participation of private investors.
