UK bodies involved in European waste week

Seven UK authorities are participating in the European Week for Waste Reduction.

National bodies Waste Awareness Wales, Waste Aware Scotland and the Northern Ireland Department of the Environment are all running events.

They will be joined by Belfast City Council, the Greater London Authority, Warrington Borough Council and Buckinghamshire Waste Partnership.

The event, supported by the LIFE+ Programme of the European Commission, takes place from 19 to 27 November and is in its third year.

The idea of a European Week for Waste Reduction was to promote the concept of waste prevention during a week of activities organised by administrations/public authorities, associations/NGOs, businesses/industry, educational establishments, etc.

It aims to raise awareness about waste reduction strategies and policies across the European Union, and to promote sustainable waste reduction actions across the continent.

A total of 33 organising bodies are registered across 17 EU countries as well as Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brazil and the Dominican Republic.
