DIADYMA SA and the Integrated Waste Management System (WSSD) of the Region of Western Macedonia.

DIADYMA SA was founded in 1998 and is the Solid Waste Management Authority of the Region of Western Macedonia. The 12 municipalities of the region participate in the share capital of the company with the share capital allocated to them in proportion to the production of their waste.

DIADYMA is responsible for the design, development and operation of the Integrated Waste Management System (IWMS) of Western Macedonia consisting of ten (10) Local Waste Management Units and a Central Integrated Management Facility.

The first phase of the system, which fully covered the requirements for the safe disposal of landfill waste, has been in operation since the summer of 2005 and has enabled municipalities in the region to close first in all the territory, 207 uncontrolled landfills which they restored in their entirety at the end of 2007.

Since 2009 recycling programs have been implemented in the region with Separate collection at the Source for four streams of recyclable packaging materials (plastic, metal and glass paper) in collaboration with Municipalities and Hellenic Recovery Recycling Corporation SA. Also, in the municipalities of Kozani and Voio, the implementation of bio-waste programs has begun.

There are infrastructures for the management of at least eight (8) waste streams, such as: composites, paper, plastic, metals, glass, bulky, green, WEEE, within the LWMUs - which operate as Basic Green Points - while there is an appropriate infrastructure for the LWMUin Kozani management of waste oils.

The core and main facility of Westerns’ Macedonia IWMS is the Mechanical and Biological Treatment Unit (MBTU), which was implemented under the Public Private Partnership (PPP) and entered into full operation in July 2017.
