European Week for Waste Reduction

What is the European Week for Waste Reduction?

For the tenth year running, North London Waste Authority (NLWA) will participate in the European Week for Waste Reduction (EWWR), an initiative aiming to promote the implementation of awareness-raising actions about sustainable resource and waste management during a single week. Funded by European Commission’s LIFE+ Programme, EWWR is a week of activity, celebrating sustainability and, in particular, waste prevention. All sorts of organisations, as well as individual citizens, take part in the week, either by attending an event, or holding their own.


London Upcycling Show

This year, the week will run from Saturday 17 to Sunday 25 November 2018 and NLWA contracted environmental charity Groundwork London to organise and deliver the third London Upcycling Show.
