The European Week for Waste Reduction was launched in 2009 with the support of the LIFE+ Programme of the European Commission. The aim of the European Week for Waste Reduction is to put forward the concept of waste prevention, reuse and recycling during one week, by coordinating awareness-raising actions organised by a variety of actors. The next EWWR edition will take place between 16 and 24 November 2013. Everyone interested in joining is welcome!
The Week is coordinated at European level by the Association of Cities and Regions for Recycling and Sustainable Resource Management (ACR+), the international network of public authorities committed to promoting sustainable waste and resource management and acting as EWWR Technical Secretariat, in cooperation with several national and regional organisations.
