Europe - top priority to waste prevention

The EU waste strategy gives top priority to waste prevention, followed by treatment measures such as recycling, re-use, incineration (with energy recovery), and as a last resort, landfilling. Precluding the increasing quantities of municipal waste from landfilling is forecasted to lead to an increase in the volume of incinerated waste across the EU and expand the related recycling market.

So lets remember whats coming, or what needs to be done to improve the current situation within prevention/minimisation schemes.
