Waste Package adopted by European Parliament Environment committee

The European Parliament Environment committee today adopted the deal on the Waste Package in a move that backs plans to boost recycling and reduce landfilling.  More on the details of the final deal can be read here.

The Waste Package makes the right step towards building Europe’s Circular Economy. Yet much will depend on Member States not abusing flexibilities offered by the compromise texts. It is essential that clear guidance is set to prevent commingling of waste and to effectively measure recycling not at collection, but where it actually happens”  Director General of CEPI
