Green Line’s General Assembly defined the Solid Waste Management issue as priority for the programme due to the increasing problem at the national level and the failure of the government to put in place and implement a national solid waste management scheme. Green Line is currently coordinating and lobbying with more than 70 NGOs against the governmental decision to solve the solid waste problem by creating more landfills. This coalition, which includes environmental activists and other civil society representatives, believes that the government should develop and implement a National Strategy for waste management based on reduction, re-use, recycling and composting of household waste.
