EC presenteert preview van resultaten consultatie Review of the European Waste Management Targets
A preview of the results of the online consultation on the Review of the European Waste Management Targets was presented on 30 September at the Conference on plastic waste. The consultation was based on the Green Paper on Plastic Waste.
Most respondents argued that the EU should stop funding landfilling and incineration and should start using public money to upgrade recycling infrastructures in Europe. Nearly half of all respondents call for improvements to waste sorting and collection in all Member States, preferably through separate door step collection combined with "pay as you throw" schemes. While many respondents support voluntary action, a large majority call for better implementation and improved legislation, including a landfill ban for plastic. They also want stricter and additional recycling targets and stricter export controls, to ensure that European waste is not dumped or recycled in substandard facilities in third countries (Persbericht Europese Commissie, 30 september 2013).
