Transposition of Landfill and Incineration Directive:
National policies on waste:
The youngest available waste data are from the year 2002. As the relevant legislation was imposed from 2002 onwards, it cannot be expected that any effect is seen. It is, however, important to shortly describe the development of waste generation, of the amount landfilled and recycled.
From the statistical data it can be concluded that all municipal waste was either landfilled or recycled. There seems to be no waste incineration in Cyprus.
In 2002 the amount of municipal waste generated in Cyprus was 500 000 tonnes. This corresponds to 704 kg/capita, a value well above the EU average. The MSW generation per GDP in 2002 was EUR 144 per kg.
When analysing the development from 1996 to 2002 it can be seen, that all three, the total amount of municipal solid waste generated, the amount of MSW landfilled and the amount recycled increased. Related to the population the MSW generation grew 10 % faster than the population, related to the economy, MSW generation grew 5 % slower than GDP between 1996 and 2002.
While the total amount of MSW landfilled grew by 16 % from 1996 to 2002 the share on all MSW treated decreased from 93 to 90 %. Simultaneously the share of MSW collected fro recycling increased from 7.7 to 10 %. This, however, is still a very low number in international comparison. The increase in the recycling rate was caused by an increase in the recycling rate of paper, plastics and metals. The recycling rate of glass, however, decreased.
Strategic Plan for the Management of Solid and Hazardous Waste:
Type, quantity and origin of waste to be managed
Creation of 4 regional centres for MSW management
Creation of 1 hazardous waste treatment unit
Implementation will cost EUR 60-70 million
There are 6 implementation programmes of which 2 are of direct relevance to this fact sheet:
