In its ‘Roadmap to a Resource Efficient Europe’, the European Commission has put the following milestone: ‘By 2020, waste is managed as a resource’.
Recycling and re-use have to become attractive options for the public and private sectors due to a variety of professional collection schemes in the Member States, and the development of markets for secondary raw materials.
To increase the efficiency of materials collection for recycling, a number of regulatory instruments are already applicable, such as the Eco-design Directive, the Directive on End-of-Life Vehicles, the Directive on Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment, the Batteries Directive and the Waste Framework Directive. See legislation.
