Short Description

The waste package sets out new rules for waste management and establishes legally binding targets for recycling. The legislation contains a landfill reduction target and sets minimum requirements for all extended producer responsibility schemes. The waste package will lead to more recycling of waste and so contribute to the creation of a circular economy. It will encourage the use of recyclable packaging and reusable packaging and will improve the way waste is managed.
