Waste management can be viewed from a social, economic, political and of course environmental perspective. Its proper coordination and the achievement of high efficiency is a challenge for both the Local Authorities and the citizens. It must be noted that there is not a one-size-fits-all PAYT scheme. Each community has its own special characteristics and conditions that must be always be taken into consideration when a PAYT scheme is designed.

On January 2009 set off the EU LIFE Environment Project entitled “The Development of Pay As You Throw Systems in Hellas, Estonia and Cyprus”. It is co-funded from the European Union with 48,5% of the total budget. It is also implemented from partners coming from four EU Member States (Greece, Germany, Estonia, Cyprus) and is planned to end on July 2011.
