Response to the Commission Proposal for the Revision of the Waste Shipments Regulation


Short summary:

Municipal Waste Europe welcomes the Commission proposal for the revision of the Waste Shipments Regulation and the way in which it addresses the issue of illegal shipments as well as the creation of a digital notification system which is simultaneously accessible by all Member States and adaptable to existing national digital notification systems.

Our feedback and proposals identify loopholes which can still be closed in order to further inhibit illegal shipments while facilitating legal shipments of waste for reuse, recycling and recovery within the EU. Read MWE response here.
