Romania recently started making new and important steps concerning the management of compostable non–hazardous waste. It is already notorious that upon accession to the European Union (”EU”), Romania has assumed a series of responsibilities, constantly evolving, in the spirit of the Community objectives. Among them, the one which lately has the strongest impact is represented by environmental protection and fight against global warming.
