The annual European Week for Waste Reduction (EWWR) brings together schools, public administrations, companies, NGOs and citizens from across Europe who are united by the same goal: promoting awareness-raising activities on sustainable resource and waste management.   

Through actions and projects aimed at reducing, reusing and recycling waste, participants get to showcase their initiatives with the aim of raising awareness. Finalists are selected by a panel of independent experts, and the winners are announced during the Malta Waste Reduction Awards, with prizes awarded per category. The winners also get to represent Malta in the European Waste Reduction Awards, which bring together the best participants in the field from all over Europe.   

This year's European Week for Waste Reduction is taking place from 20 to 28 November 2021 and the chosen theme is ‘Circular Communities’.  

For this year, the EWWR is about communities working together towards a common goal: waste reduction. We believe that collective action will lead to better results.  

Jump on board for a less-waste world!

41 actions in Malta & Gozo from 34 entities

Through such collaboration, we can stop producing waste and together build communities on the circular economy model all around Europe and beyond. 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              The thematic focus is on need to have individual citizens and the wider community engaged, invested, and see local value and benefit in pursuing zero waste and circular activities.                                                                                                                                                                               

Those that take part in the European Week for Waste Reduction will then have the opportunity to participate in the Malta Waste Reduction Awards, where the best actions that took place in Malta will be awarded.   

On 25th August 2021, WasteServ awarded those actions that best represented the 2020 theme of ‘Invisible Waste’. Each winning project received funding to help in their efforts at reducing waste. The winners were selected by a jury of experts following their registration to the European Week for Waste Reduction. These awards aim to inspire more people to become stewards of the environment in our fight to reduce waste.
