Food Waste Legislation: Approaches from Europe and US
Organized on 24th June, 2019.
Food waste is one of the biggest challenges that the world faces today, contributing to climate change and resource depletion. Many cities and governments are taking action on this issue through legislation. For example, the US state of Massachusetts has banned large food waste generators from disposing of food waste in the trash. More recently, the EU has introduced a new requirement for separate collection of food waste by 2023. But has the ban in Massachusetts been successful? How was it rolled out? What results have been achieved? How are municipalities preparing for the new EU requirement? Will it have any teeth? This webinar answers all these questions.
