A rise in landfill and organic waste regulation has strained Greece’s economic and environmental status. The European Union’s (EU) 1999 directive has cost Greece millions in fines for not properly managing organic waste. Our project aimed to assess the implementation of vermicomposting as a way to mitigate these economic consequences. By way of case studies, surveys, and interviews at three scales of focus—individual, institutional, and municipal—we have assessed interest in vermicomposting and the possibilities for an alternative waste management program.
