Key Information
The By-law on the landfilling of waste makes provisions for the monitoring, control, closure and after-care procedures of landfill facilities. It has also created a reporting mechanism and database to support this. The National strategy on the reduction of biodegradable waste to be disposed of in landfill facilities has also been developed at a draft stage. This strategy shall include the measures to be taken with the methods such as recycling, composting, biogas production or energy/material recovery. According to the strategy for the reduction of biodegradable waste amounts, the implementation of the EU Landfill Directive (99/31/EC) will be carried out by 2025.
