1. Local-regional authorities (LRAs) are key-waste players 2. LRAS moving to waste – resource efficiency 3. - LRAs moving to waste prevention - Why not a COR–platform to support LRAs moving to waste prevention ? 4.- LRAs moving to waste recycling - Why not a COR–platform about waste selective collection good practices ? -> CONCLUSIONS : CALL FOR PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN COR AND LRAS NETWORKS FOR THE EUROPEAN RECYCLING SOCIETY PLAN

Key waste-players ! WASTE PREVENTION PROGRAMME RECYCLING TARGETS
A multi-R WASTE approach Rethink Recycle Reuse Repair Reduce Redesign Resources Waste Energy Recovery 2. Moving to waste – resource efficiency PRODUCTS
To reduce pollution To tackle climate change To preserve material and energy resources To promote local economy and jobs To increase competitiveness of EU industry To stop « life-cycle breaks » To increase resource efficiency WASTE PREVENTION AND MANAGEMENT = Moving to waste – resource efficiency
Need of exchange of Good practices Between local –regional authorities Need to develop prevention action partnership (Twinnings/ cooperation agreements) Need to identify quantitative targets and indicators or prevention (Experts Clusters) Need to increase Awareness at cities and regions level (European Week for Waste Reduction) 3. LRAs moving to waste prevention
EX: ACT AGAINST FOOD WASTAGE (food = 20-30% of total CO2 emissions) EU BENCHMARK -10 (of 30) kg Oporto Region-Lipor (Portugal) … serving the right portion 20-25kg less per restaurant/day Brussels Region (Belgium) … 6 pilot households 15kg less per inh/year Amiat-Torino (Italy) … collection of bread and fruit in schools More than 1kg/pupil LRAs moving to waste prevention
