Conference: "Municipal waste management and waste prevention"

On 21 November 2017, the European Commission organized together with the Committee of Regions a conference on "Municipal waste management and waste prevention" in Brussels.

The conference was targeted at European municipalities and regions from Member States that have not met the 50% recycling target (which is to be met by 2020) yet and are seeking to improve their performance. The focus of the conference was on practical aspects of municipal waste management, showing how leading municipalities and regions have achieved excellent results.

The conference is part of the Commission's initiatives to promote compliance with the waste acquis across the European Union.
