MWE Response to the Call for Evidence for an Impact Assessment for the Revision of EU Waste Framework


Short summary:

Most EU Member States are still dealing with the challenges presented by implementation of the previous revisions of the Waste Framework Directive. And despite efforts to reduce it, waste generation is still growing in the EU and many countries have failed to achieve the recycling and other targets. The next revision of the Waste Framework Directive, expected in 2023, should enhance waste prevention and pay serious attention to bulky waste, e-waste and textiles. MWE calls on the Commission to take a set of considerations in next revision. Read the response here.
