Zero Waste Europe

Map of European Zero Waste Municipalities

What defines a “Zero Waste Municipality” is the firm and verifiable commitment to move towards Zero Waste and the results that it will deliver in the next years.

Zero Waste Europe brings together and represents the European municipalities that have openly committed to the goal of continuously reducing waste generation and improving waste separate collection and hence redesigning the relationship between people and waste.

This page presents the mapping of municipalities on the Zero Waste path.
