Questionnaire on landfills, landfill management and LFM in the EU

EURELCO aims to further develop the knowledge on landfills in Europe and wants to improve the current infographic. The aim of this questionnaire is to collect EU-wide information about landfills, landfill management and LFM activities and policy issues. This in order to better understand potential drivers, barriers and enablers for LFM implementation and how such challenges could vary among regions.
