Also note: All EU member states have to apply waste hierarchy (article 4 of the Waste Directive 2008/98/EC), set up separate collection for, inter alia, paper by 2015 (article 11) and meet by 2020 a target of recycling or reusing of waste materials such as at least paper, metal, plastic and glass from households of miniumum 50% by weight (article 11.2(a)); it is likely that paper will have to be recycled at a rate much higher than 50% to meet the overall target of 50% for all waste materials.
