The Department of Environment implements the project “Management of hazardous waste produced by households”. The Department of Environment is supported by the Nicosia Development Agency on project management level.
The project is funded by the Norwegian Funds ‘Norway Grants Programming 2014-2021’ with a duration of 39 months.
The project will emphasize on the following key pillars:
More specifically, four mobile units will be created where hazardous waste generated by households will be collected, such as small electrical appliances and electronic devices, batteries, paints, solvents, ink cartridges, colors, lamps, pharmaceuticals, etc. The mobile units will be visiting selected locations across Cyprus. They will be remaining to each location for 2-3 days and specialized staff will be informing citizens and students of the area about the need and benefits of the separate collection of hazardous waste generated by households. In this way an effort will be made to raise awareness, collect and separate hazardous household waste.
