Abstract:The waste constitutes always most serious environmental, social and economic problem for the all modern economies. The volume of the most with growth rate proportional or even occasionally bigger than the economic growth. There are over than one thousand unauthorized dumping sites in Greece. The absence of organized facilities, the widespread and fierce social opposition to the creation of legally authorized landfill sites, poorly drafted administrative procedures that will more than likely lead to condemnation by the courts and an imperfect and cumbersome legal framework in relation to waste management all mean this is on of the fields in which the country has one of the poorest records in its environment policy.
A necessary examination of the facts surrounding waste and basic management law provision in Greece will be presented. Also an outline of national approach to recovery mechanisms with objectives and integrated solid waste management plan will be developed in the manuscript.
Keywords: solid waste, recovery, integrated management.
