ENVIRONMENTAL WASTE CRIME

ENVIRONMENTAL WASTE CRIME

is one aspect of Environmental Crime that involves the illegal disposal, management and transport of waste.

If not handled properly, waste can cause serious pollution of the environment (air, land and water) and this can be extremely harmful to human and animal health.

INDUSTRIAL AND HOUSEHOLD WASTE

is a very significant problem for modern societies.

Some wastes are stockpiled, others are burned or full or partially recycled.

All wastes, including the less hazardous ones, have a negative impact on the environment.

Every establishment or business that produces waste right across Greece has the responsibility to manage it properly & according to the law.
