ACR+ continues to follow the developments concerning the interpretation and implementation of the recommendations includedin the Waste Framework Directive (98/2008).

The ACR+ Annual General Meeting in 2011 was devoted to the implementation of the Framework Directive at the local and regional level in Europe. An international conference was organised together with the City of Genoa (Italy), on 26 - 27 October 2011. Related to the accounts from ACR+ members, the conference programme addressed the great challenges of the implementation process.

Here are the subjects discussed at the Conference:

  • 3 years after its adoption, the progress made with the implementation of the Waste Framework Directive
  • Legal obligations and implementation at local level for:
    • waste prevention
    • selective collection and recycling
    • economic instruments
  • Exchange of experiences concerning waste prevention: how to design, plan, implement, communicate and monitor a waste prevention programme?
  •  How to measure and compare recycling performances at local and regional level?
  •  How to build a Euro-Mediterranean network of local and regional authorities on waste management policies and capacity building?

The first day of the conference ended with the inauguration of the Genoa waste museum - Museo della "Rumenta".
