The task-bearing organization EcoWerf is a form of cooperation between 27 municipalities and the province of Flemish-Brabant. The participating municipalities entrust EcoWerf with the execution of their waste policy.
Three big pillars can be distinguished: wast prevention, waste collection (door-to-door as well as via recycling yards) and waste traetment. EcoWerf provides this service for 390.000 inhabitants.
We define waste prevention as stimulation of households to produce less waste and to selectively sort the inevitable waste. These are a few examples of our actions: promotion of home-composting, low-waste gardening, reusable diapers, etc.
During the action ‘Afvalpreventieweek’ inhabitants can participate workshops such as: cooking with or without leftovers, the use of washable diapers, what do to with garden ‘waste’, wich plants to use in the garden, visit our compostingplants.
