14 member states submit their waste prevention plans on time

14 member states have successfully managed to adopt national waste prevention programmes in time before the deadline of 12th December 2013 set out under the Waste Framework Directive (2008/98/EC). The legislation foresees plans being evaluated at least every six years. Member states have been able to incorporate these into their national waste management plans, other environmental policy programmes, or establish them as separate programmes. The programmes set out the waste prevention objectives, their existing prevention measures and identify qualitative and quantitative indicators for measuring improvements. The Commission proposes to review the plans through the European Environment Agency and a number of country abstracts containing information about objectives, sectors as well as types of waste covered are already available for Austria, Belgium (Brussels), Finland, Germany, Ireland, Latvia, Luxembourg, Norway, Poland and Portugal on the agency’s website.
