On 14 May 2013, Municipal Waste Europe organised a seminar on the key issues currently at the focus of discussion in environmental and business circles in Brussels: resource efficiency and the ability to recover more material resources from waste, the three pillars of sustainability and implementation of the waste directives, particularly in those countries with high levels of landfilling. The event brought together representatives of the European Commission, the European Parliament, the Committee of the Regions, public and private waste management, NGOs and producers, covering a wide spectrum of stakeholders with a direct and indirect interest in the resource-efficiency debate.
