Zero Waste Europe has just released a new zero waste case study on Roubaix, France!

Lacking the power to implement waste collection and management practices, Roubaix had to find new ways to transition to zero waste. The Town is addressing waste at source, by creating a vibrant constellation of actors committed to reducing their waste, including families, schools and businesses.

The Roubaix project was so successful that 25% of participating households were able to reduce their waste generation by over 80% and 70% reduced their waste by 50%.
