The joint RAWFILL / EURELCO working group on promoting landfill mining policy in the EU was a great success. More than 20 participants from 8 EU member states participated in an animated discussion on (legal) barriers for LFM and legal and policy aspect of LFM. As there is no dedicated EU or regional LFM policy, the challenges we are facing are very clear. Within the first workshop some first steps and some preliminary recommendations were done. They will be taken up in further joint workshops and regional workshops. If you are interested to know more about this policy group or to participate in the discussion, please contact the regional RAWFILL partner.
