The new policy brief by the Interreg Policy Learning Platform “The biowaste management challenge” provides an outlook on EU initiatives that local and regional authorities should refer to for boosting their biowaste collection, prevention and recycling rates in compliance with the EU Directives and to the benefit of a local circular economy. ACR+ contributed by sharing recommendations to local policy makers and practitioners in view of the increasing EU ambitions and targets and to engage public and private actors in circular biowaste management. Public authorities across Europe are called upon to set and replicate awareness-raising programmes; adopt effective fiscal measures; ease regulations on food redistribution; and create new social spaces for food redistribution and valorisation of local products.

The policy brief also presents a selection of Interreg Europe good practices and related EU-funded projects with a high degree of replicability and adaptability to other municipal contexts. These include several projects in which ACR+ is a partner such as LIFE REThinkWaste, WINPOL, LCA4Regions, and INTHERWASTE.
