Thematic Focus 2018

Hazardous Waste Prevention: Time to Detox!

The Thematic Focus for 2018 is Hazardous Waste Prevention. It poses a greater risk to our health and our environment when compared to other types of waste. Thus, it is even more important to reduce our consumption of products with hazardous contents as well as make sure that they are properly disposed of. In 2018, it is time to detox and diminish the use of such products in our nearest surroundings such as bathrooms, kitchens, sheds and garages!

The actions implemented in the EWWR are addressing the “3Rs”: Reduce waste, Reuse products, Recycle material. The “3Rs” represent the options which should be considered first when elaborating a waste management strategy.
