Joint recommendation for monitoring commercial and industrial waste with the aim for future targets on reuse, recycling and landfilling
With regard to the revision of the Waste Framework Directive and the Landfill Directive a joint recommendation for the monitoring and analysis of the viability of future targets on reuse, recycling and landfilling of commercial and industrial waste, co-signed by local authorities, public service providers, environmental organisations and waste operators was sent to the European Council and the European Parliament.
Current recycling and landfill targets cover only up to 10% of all waste generated (municipal waste) whereas the greater proportion of secondary raw materials are to be found in the other 70-75% (commercial and industrial waste), the remainder being inert mining waste.
Therefore, the cosignatories recommend with the revision of the waste legislative proposals to implement reporting of commercial and industrial wastes.
