Coalition Call to Support Binding Recycling Content Targets in Beverage Bottles


Short summary:

Municipal Waste Europe becomes part of a broad coalition which urges the Council to support the binding target of at least 35% recycled plastic in beverage bottles by 2025. This target voted by the European Parliament on 24 October is instrumental in the achievement of the objectives of the Single Use Plastics (SUP) Directive and in igniting the much supported transition towards a more circular economy. It would be a historical step, correcting a much overdue market failure to not value recycled material more while unlocking much needed investment in collection and recycling.
