In 2015, the European Week for Waste Reduction (EWWR) will take place between 21 and 29 November. In its 7th edition, EWWR has each year gathered more fans around the issues of waste prevention. While National Waste Authority, the APA ensures since 2009 the national organization of the European Week for Waste Reduction (EWWR), with the main goal to raise awareness on the importance of prevention as a key factor in implementing the waste management hierarchy.
Projects dedicated to the prevention and reduction of municipal waste, including EWWR can get capital gains ensured at regional level, in particular the level of performance of the Municipal Waste Management Systems (SGRU), which more closely coexisting with the different regional realities better assess the performance requirements and better fit the specific goals and the local prevention strategy.
