Packaging waste: higher recycling and recovery targets due to be implemented in EU Member States

Public Management, Environment,Administrations States,

News By today, all EU Member States should have transposed into their national legislation an EU Directive setting higher recycling and recovery targets for packaging waste.

This type of waste includes packaging made from paper, glass, metals, plastics and wood. The new Directive updates and strengthens an earlier Directive from 1994. It aims to further reduce the negative environmental impacts created by the landfilling and incineration of packaging waste and by the production of virgin materials. So far only Austria, the Czech Republic, Germany, Luxembourg and the United Kingdom have informed the Commission that they have transposed the Directive.
