Country fact sheets

These country fact sheets were produced in the context of reviewing national and regional waste prevention programmes across Europe. The Waste Framework Directive (Directive 2008/98/EC), Article 29, requires that Member States adopt their waste prevention programmes by 12 December 2013. Article 30(2) of the Directive invites the European Environment Agency (EEA) to carry out an annual review of progress in the completion and implementation of the programmes. Within the waste hierarchy, the overarching principle behind EU and national waste policies, waste prevention is considered the most desirable option.
