ISWA is pleased to invite all ISWA European members to attend an exclusive online roundtable on the 31st August (14:00-16:00) focused on EU Waste Laws and National Implementation.

In 2018, EU governments and institutions struck a historic agreement introducing what many hailed as the world’s most ambitious set of laws and targets to boost recycling and cut waste. During this Regional Networking Roundtable we will focus on the EU Waste Laws starting with a short introduction and current status after which several implementation examples from European countries will be presented. The idea of the roundtable is to create a community and an opportunity to discuss challenges and opportunities, therefore ample time will be available for discussion.
