Improving waste management in the EU

The European Parliament’s Environment Committee has given its approval to new EU rules establishing legally binding targets for waste recycling and the reduction of landfilling with fixed deadlines.

EPP Group MEP Karl-Heinz Florenz, the European Parliament’s shadow rapporteur on a set of four EU laws that are designed to improve waste management, explained why the laws are so important and how they can benefit the EU as a whole.
