Reducing and recycling food and garden waste to boost Europe’s circular economy

Bio-waste is one of the key waste streams in Europe and holds great potential for the circular economy.
According to the European Environment Agency’s new assessment, 
reducing and using bio-waste could cut emissions, improve soils and provide energy.

Recycling bio-waste is also key for meeting the European Unions target to recycle 65 % of municipal waste by 2035.
