The Region of Western Macedonia is located in the northern part of Greece and consists of four regional units with total population of 280,000. DIADYMA is the waste management company at regional level and collects waste in six different streams (glass, metal, paper, plastic, used cooking oils and biowaste). DIADYMA is responsible for a pilot project in which biowaste is separately collected from 1,200 households across Western Macedonia. After the collection of the biowaste, it goes to the Mechanical Composters. The Municipalities of the Region as well as DIADYMA will expand the biowaste collection to cover the entire Region and will be supplied with new brown bins and collection vehicles.
