The European Week for Waste Reduction (EWWR) is an initiative aiming to promote the implementation of awareness-raising actions about sustainable resource and waste management during a single week.

It encourages a wide range of audiences (public authorities, private companies, civil society as well as citizens themselves) to get involved.

The 2015 edition of the event was held under the patronage of the European Parliament. Get a glimpse about what happened here!

The 2016 edition of the EWWR will take place between the 19th and the 27th of November 2016.
