Published: 20/01/2021

In Belgium, the packaging industry made an agreement with the authorities to cooperate in fighting litter. An action plan is being executed in cooperation with the authorities by Mooimakers and BeWapp. This action plan is based on five pillars: awareness-raising, infrastructure, environment, participation and enforcement. Every year, the packaging industry invests EUR 17 million to put the action plan into practice via the national EPR system for household packaging waste.
