The amount of waste separated from the municipal waste is growing but most municipal waste is still being disposed of in landfills without pretreatment and the required reduction in disposed quantities of biodegradable municipal waste is not achieved.

Out of 299 official landfill remediation projects that have been pursued since 2004, remediation of 64 sites has been completed.

Out of 767 recorded illegal dump sites, remediation of 549 sites has been completed.

The remediation activities are being carried out on all eleven priority sites contaminated with hazardous process waste determined by the Plan [2].

In 2007, greenhouse gas emissions from waste management activities (disposal and treatment of solid municipal waste, wastewater management and waste incineration) amounted to 868 Gg CO2 eq. or 2.7% of total greenhouse gas emissions, and waste disposal accounted for 69.5% of the sectoral emission [10].
