The main project focus at the moment is conducting surveys and sampling collection across all partner areas, and through the analysis of collected items the aim is to define waste seasonal variation in measurable and comparable quantities and quality. The Department of Environment of the Ministry of Agriculture, Rural Development and Environment of the Republic of Cyprus, which is the Lead Partner of the project is implementing these activities in Cyprus at the national level.
