Circular Economy waste deal: a step forward for metals recycling, if properly implemented

EU institutions today reached a preliminary agreement on new waste legislation to push Europe’s Circular Economy forwards.

The European non-ferrous metals association (Eurometaux) welcomes new provisions to measure recycling rates more accurately and promote high-quality metals recycling.

However, we are concerned that EU institutions have decided on flexible recycling targets for aluminium and other packaging. This provides one of several potential loopholes for Member States to avoid the package’s overall ambition, which now depends on each government’s implementation.
