Improving waste management in Greece

A key challenge for Greece is to improve the management of waste in line with the circular economy. The Commission supported the Greek authorities in improving the framework conditions for the implementation of the Greek national waste management plan in order to close the gap with regard to the national targets for 2020. In particular, the project contributed to improving municipal waste management, clarifying specific regulatory issues and enhancing the framework conditions for managing specific waste categories.
