ANAKEM is one of the first Collective Systems for the Alternative Management (CSAM) of Excavation, Construction and Demolition Wastes (ECDW). ANAKEM was founded by technical construction companies as a société anonyme (S.A.).

As a Collective System for the Alternative Management of Excavation, Construction and Demolition Wastes (CSAM ECDW) we are the responsible body for the alternative management of ECDW in the areas within our range of operation. We collaborate with ECD Wastes producers (contractors of private and public projects), with processing units and with enterprises specialized in the collection, transfer and temporary storage of ECDW, for the effective processing, recycling and recovering of wastes. Furthermore, we provide support to public bodies and organizations, especially in regions and municipalities, in the prevention of production, the proper management and uncontrolled disposal of wastes in their jurisdiction, we as well inform them about the procedures to be followed for the alternative management of wastes in their projects. We monitor and document the data for the alternative management of ECDW and report our results to the Hellenic Recycling Agency.
