Action 39 and Action 40: Best practice on waste management

Action Title:

39 - Highlight those waste management practices that impact significantly on marine litter. Engage with the industry and other authorities, at the appropriate level, in order for them to be able to develop best environmental practice, including identification of circumstances on where litter “escapes” into the marine environment and investigating how to close loops focusing on non-toxic material cycles.

40 - Share best practice on waste management, e.g. on landfill bans of high caloric wastes (esp. for plastics).
