Landmark agreement reached on Circular Economy Package

Date Published: Monday 8th January 2018

A compromise was reached over long-term recycling targets in Europe after EU institutions finally came to an agreement on legislative terms for the Circular Economy Package, a set of laws and actions designed to guarantee a more resource-efficient future for Europe. Member states have won the battle over municipal recycling targets, with a 60 per cent goal for 2030 to be written into legislation with a further 65 per cent target being set for 2035. An additional target of 55 per cent by 2025 will also be introduced. EU member states are currently working towards a 50 per cent target for 2020 - one that the UK looks set to miss out on.
