In the Framework of the EU Green Week, on 16 May 2019, ACR+ member Navarra will hold a workshop on Good practices in waste prevention at the Delegation of Navarra in Brussels. The Parliament of Navarra adopted a law on waste and its taxation in June 2018 with the aim of developing prevention measures to produce less waste, to implement high-quality separate waste collection and to establish a new taxation system that penalises landfilling and creates a waste fund. During the workshop, organisers will introduce the new legal framework, together with good practices in waste prevention. ACR+ members Lipor and Bruxelles Environnement will also have the opportunity to present actions developped on their territories.


The event will finish with an ACR+ wrap-up of good practices that could be exported to other regions.
