Plastics recyclers thrilled by EU waste review proposal

Europe – In response to the European Commission’s recent waste review proposal, Brussels-based Plastics Recyclers Europe (PRE) has welcomed its EU circular economy package.

‘The changes put forward by the Commission will enable a shift from a linear to a circular economy for plastics,’ says PRE president Ton Emans. ‘Unlocking a circular economy will safeguard Europe’s economies by easing our dependency on imported raw materials.’

However, a stronger push for quality recycling is said to be missing from the Commission’s proposal. Emans states: ‘The quality of recycled plastics depends on the quality of collection and sorting. Therefore, stricter requirements on separate collection and high-quality sorting are needed in order to reach high-quality recycling.’

PRE is calling on all stakeholders to embrace this strategic objective in order to move towards a Recycling Society by supporting the Commission’s proposal.
