Recycling – EU Parliament Calls for Binding Targets

According to a February 9, 2021 Reuters story “… The European Parliament … [that day] called for the EU to introduce binding targets to use recycled content in products and consume fewer raw materials, to curb the pile-up of plastic pollution and stop reusable materials being wasted … The European Union’s executive Commission is drafting laws to rein in the environmental impact of the bloc’s consumption, by using fewer resources and switching from raw materials to more reused and recycled ones … The EU Parliament adopted a report calling for the Commission to address these issues, to protect Europe’s natural landscapes and cut CO2 emissions … The Commission should propose mandatory EU requirements to use recycled content in certain products or sectors, plus binding targets to use less primary raw materials …” – The web link to the story is included in the post on the home page of Plastic Food Packaging Waste News at #Recycling #PlasticWaste #SingleUsePlastic
