European Commission opens consultation on waste targets


The European Commission launched a consultation this week on the review of European waste management targets aimed at identifying issues and solutions related to the EU's central waste legislation: the Waste Framework Directive, the Landfill Directive and the Packaging and Packaging Waste Directive.

Announced earlier this year (EUWID 8/2013), the review is intended on the one hand to fulfil provisions of the laws which require that the targets be re-evaluated, and on the other hand to adjust the targets so that they support the Commission's more recently established objectives for resource efficiency found in the Roadmap on Resource Efficiency and the proposal for the 7th Environmental Action Programme, said the DG Environment.
The consultation is open to citizens, organisations and public authorities and runs until 10 September.
The consultation documents can be accessed through the Commission's consultation website.
