Reduction and/or Elimination of Hazardous Waste Generation


National strategies/policies

A National Strategy for the Management of Wastes has been prepared, taking into consideration all the necessary measures for the reduction of the generation of wastes, as provided in the relevant E.U. legislation. The National Strategy for the Management sets the basic principle of the waste hierarchy “Generation of waste shall be avoided whenever possible, wastes shall be recovered/ recycled whenever possible and wastes shall be disposed of in an environmentally compatible way".







Legislation, regulations and guidelines

In accordance with the E.U and national legislation the environmental standards and the criteria to reduce and eliminate generation of hazardous wastes and other wastes are in elaboration.







Economic instruments/ initiatives

Actions have been made to the Ministry of Finance using economic instruments to encourage environmentally friendly activities or discourage polluting activities.
