Do you have what it takes to triumph at the European Paper Recycling Awards?

By next year, EU countries have to realise a recycling rate for paper of 74%. It is hoped the annual European Paper Recycling Awards can give the industry the boost it needs to meet this target. Companies can now apply to enter the competition.

Every two years, the European Paper Recycling Awards honour innovative projects, initiatives or campaigns that change the way paper is recycled. Entries for the industry-wide contest, organised by the European Paper Recycling Council, will be accepted until Friday 22 November. Interested parties can submit their application here.

The awards have two categories: one is Information & Education and the other is Innovative Technologies and R&D. The competition is open to any organisation based in Europe, including schools, universities, NGOs, national and regional authorities, companies and associations.

Eligible projects, initiatives or campaigns will be evaluated on the following criteria: relevance and originality; achievements; capacity to reproduce the project, and cost-effectiveness. 

The awards ceremony will take place in February 2020 at the European Parliament in Brussels. Jytte Guteland MEP, a Swedish politician and member of the Parliament’s Environment, Public Health and Food Safety committee, will host the event.
