The awards ceremony for the 2010 European Week for Waste Reduction took place last Monday March 28, 2011 in Brussels before roughly 200 attendees, including the Brussels-Capital Region Minister for the Environment Evelyne Huytebroeck and several representatives of the European Commission and the LIFE+ Programme. From 20 – 28 November 2010, 4,346 EWWR actions took place in 24 countries throughout Europe and beyond with the common aim to promote waste reduction. Out of these, 90 were pre-selected by the various organisers and submitted to an independent jury made up of European waste management specialists. Six awards were handed out to the most outstanding actions: one for each of the five Project Developer categories plus the Jury’s Favourite Award. They were handed out by Mr. William Neale, member of the Cabinet of the EU Commissioner for the Environment Mr. Janez Poto?nik. Mr Poto?nik had planned to attend, but was prevented from attending the ceremony by other commitments. He expressed his support to the EWWR through a video message that was shown at the end of the Ceremony.

We are happy to announce that ACR+ will participate in this year’s edition of the Green Week conference.
