The European Week for Waste Reduction continues on its road to success
started with the Let’s Clean Up Europe campaign on 6-8 May 2016, and
the EWWR 2015 Awards Ceremony on 11 May 2016.
These events were
followed by two webinars in June.
The success of Let’s
Clean Up Europe (LCUE) is depicted in its figures
with more than 5,800 clean-up actions
and almost 500,000 participants
involved in 21 countries all over Europe. This is an essential
campaign under the coordination of the EWWR as it not only aims at
cleaning up but also at raising awareness on waste prevention: No waste
is the best waste! See the latest news on LCUE 2016 on
