National Strategy of Waste Management

In 2005, the MoE has presented a Draft Law on Integrated Solid Waste Management under the METAP programme. It was submitted to CoM on October 14, 2005. The draft law was approved by the CoM in January 2012 and it was accordingly forwarded to the Parliament for ratification. The draft law was reviewed and approved by the Parliament Environmental Committee and is waiting for final approval by the Parliament general assembly meeting.

The draft law incorporates a solid waste management program that includes:

  • Providing technical assistance to local departments in case of preparation of local plans for solid waste management
  • Reducing the production of solid waste
  • Encouraging composting or biological transformation of organic solid waste in a manner identical to the detachment conditions and environmental standards.
  • Guiding the civil society on ways to rationalize the consumption of natural resources thus reducing the solid waste production.
