With great majority, the members of the European Parliament adopted the report of the ENVI Committee on the waste legislative proposals in the Plenary on 14 March 2017. This vote will pave the way towards a Circular Economy by strengthening the waste hierarchy and mandating separate collection of bio-waste across Europe.
By and large, the ENVI report was
adopted with additional amendments giving a clear signal towards high
quality recycling. Besides the inclusion of a definition for organic recycling and the obligation for separate collection of bio-waste, the amendment on setting up quality assurance schemes for bio-waste management by
Member States will improve sustainable bio-waste management in Europe
by producing high quality recycled products for the European market.
The adopted text on the waste proposal includes the following:
The European Compost Network congratulates the European Parliament, especially the rapporteur and the shadow rapporteurs for this great work and step forward towards a Circular Economy. We hope that in the further negotiation process, the Council will endorse this good and comprehensive proposal of the European Parliament.
