TITLE: Update of the solid waste management regional planning, Region of Central Macedonia

CLIENT:Special Management Agency, OP Central Macedonia

DURATION:11/2002 – 02/2003

The study was the first Greek Municipal Solid Waste Management Plan at regional level, which was prepared before the adoption of the JMD 50910 on Regional SWM Plans. It incorporated the requirements of the 99/31/EC Directive on the diversion of biodegradable wastes from landfills, and the actions necessary to restore uncontrolled landfills (dumps), in the logic of the subsequent Circular of the Ministry for Environment on the Technical Studies for Environmental Restoration.

The aim of the study was:

  • To review and update the projects’ proposals and actions contained in the existing Prefectural Plans. The goal was to minimize the treatment and disposal facilities and the maximum utilization of the facilities for which construction had already begun.
  • To set objectives, implementation schedule and operational plan for the construction of additional facilities.
  • To develop a plan for the management of biodegradable and packaging waste, in line with the 2939/2001 Law and the 99/31Directive.
  • To elaborate a program for the termination of the operation of the uncontrolled landfills and to develop technical specifications for the sites’ restoration.
  • To develop guidelines for the formulation and operation of Solid Waste Management Bodies.
  • To establish a database, dynamically linked with a GIS, designed for easy and quick monitoring of solid waste management in the Region.
  • To consider the development of a distinct structure for monitoring the implementation of the Regional Planning.
