Position paper: Questionnaire supporting Commission analysis on the appropriateness of setting targets for bio-waste recycling, 31 January 2011


Short summary:

Municipal Waste Europe sustains that any EU target for bio-waste recycling should take into account local conditions, give flexibility to Member States in the selection of waste management and do not hinder further technological developments in bio-waste treatment. Separate collection should be established on a voluntary basis and not be mandatory. Municipal Waste Europe believes that also biodegradable waste from other sources (such as agriculture, industrial processes, etc…) should be included in the discussion on the appropriateness of setting bio-waste recycling targets at EU level.
