Fortunately the Commission, Council and the European Parliament reached an provisional agreement at the last trilogue meeting on the waste legislative proposals on 18 December 2017.
With regard to biowaste we got aware that the negotiation partners (of Parliament, Council and Commission) agreed on
- Setting an obligation to implement separate collection on biowaste as of 31 December 2023, and
- Strengthening the provisions on the clause technically, economically, environmentally practicable 'TEEP'.
It is expected that the final text of the agreement will be available in Q1 under the Bulgarian Presidency and agreement will then be expected by COREPER in Q1 as well.
