【EU】Tough new EU recycling rules could be game-changer for packaging

In the coming years, EU citizens are set to see a change in the way they recycle waste at their homes and businesses – and in the way that recycling is measured.

One of the most visible changes will be in the requirements for packaging, one of the biggest generators of waste.

In May last year, a new EU packaging waste directive was adopted which will set much more ambitious recycling targets and requirements to make the products more easily recyclable than they are today.
