European Waste Prevention Week

European Waste Prevention Week takes place between the 18th and 26th of November. The Municipality of Baião is associated with this project, this year with the central theme “Packaging –- Don’t let yourself get wrapped up!”

In 2020, the EU produced a total of 79.3 million tonnes of packaging waste, which corresponds to 177 kg per person.

Packaging already represents 40% of plastics and 50% of paper used in the EU.

Promote the REDUCTION of consumption, REUSE of products and materials and RECYCLING of waste, including bio-waste.

Don’t let yourself get wrapped up!
