The European Parliament's Environment Committee has again voted in favour of setting a collection target of 85 per cent of arisings in the recast of the EU Directive on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE). Its members also advocate a more ambitious timeline than the EU member states, with the new target to apply from 2016. The draft report which was adopted at the committee meeting last Tuesday will serve as basis for talks between representatives of the European Parliament (EP) and the member states with a view to aligning the positions of the two institutions ahead of the Directive's second reading in the EP plenary and the Council.
