Representatives of Waste Management Sector in the Baltic Region to Work Together in the Future

25.01.2008

The representatives of waste managers from Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia met in Riga these days, at an international conference. The conference was also attended by the representative of the European Federation of Waste Management. Waste professionals of the Baltic region agreed on cooperation for representing the interests of the new member states at the institutions of the European Union.

The initiator of the conference, Latvian Association of Waste Management Companies (LASUA), stresses that such working meetings will be regular among the Latvian, Lithuanian and Estonian associations of the sector in the future. Operation of the Baltic sector’s council with its center in Riga will be renewed at a new quality in the nearest future, which will provide continuous information exchange and coordination of activities in the Baltic States.

The Board Chairman of LASUA Janis Vilgerts emphasizes that uniting the forces of representatives of the waste management sectors of the Baltic States will provide for that the customers of the sector’s companies will not have to overpay for the services. It has also been planned to facilitate public awareness in the matters of responsible waste management.

LASUA also gave in an application for admittance of the Latvian organization of the sector’s representatives with the European Federation of Waste Management. This will allow more effective solution of issues important for our country in the Framework Waste Directive which lies at the basis of waste management policy of every European Union member state and has a direct impact on every resident of the country.

The presentations of the conference guests will be freely available at LASUA homepage.
