Today, by Decision of the PPP Inter-Ministerial Committee, the East Macedonia & Thrace waste management PPP was included to the Hellenic PPP programme.

The private partner selected will undertake the design, financing, construction, maintenance, facility management and operation of the waste management facilities for the East Macedonia & Thrace Region, for a period of 27 years. The contract value has been estimated at 130 million Euros and the total annual capacity of the facilities at 150.000 tons.

As in all waste management PPP projects, in Greece, the tendering procedures allow for all available technologies that meet the requirements of environmental targets, European and national legislation. The main selection criterion of the contractor will be the lowest payable fee for the citizens, combined with the achievement of all environmental objectives. It is foreseen that the project will be co-financed by EU funds.
