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 19th to 27th November 2022. The theme for this year is Circular and Sustainable Textiles. 

A massive industry employing over 1.5 million people just in Europe, the textile and clothing industry is one of the most polluting sectors. This sector has a high environmental and social impact in every phase: from production to distribution, and from consumption to disposal. 

Waste is out of fashion! 

Inspire actions that will bring more circularity to the textiles industry!

Prizes of €1000 to be won for each of the 7 categories.

Registration is now open.  Kindly refer to the 2022 Rules of Participation and fill up the online registration form accordingly. Registration closes on the 13th of November. 

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 03 June 2022, WasteServ awarded those actions that best represented the 2021 theme of ‘Circular Communities’. 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.
