LIFE projects have developed solutions to the technological challenges of the collection, treatment and disposal of waste in the EU. Local and regional authorities have demonstrated innovative waste management solutions through LIFE funding. Projects have focused on integrated waste management and prevention, resource use and waste treatment and recycling, as well as raising awareness. This thematic section highlights the results of waste projects. More information on the contribution of LIFE to sustainable waste management can also be found here.
