‘Work together’ for 100% recovery of packaging

08/12/2011


Continuing growth in the European recycling rate for plastics packaging could result in 100% diversion from landfill by 2020. This ambition was announced by pan-European trade body PlasticsEurope earlier this year and is given support by 2010 region-wide figures released by the European Association of Plastics Recycling and Recovery Organisations (EPRO).
The 27 members of the EU, plus Switzerland and Norway, recycled 5.018m tonnes or 32.6% of all its plastic packaging in 2010. In 2009, 4.6m tonnes (30.3%) was recycled.
Energy recovery from waste plastics packaging was 33.3%, giving a total recycling and recovery rate of 65.9% (up from 60.7% in 2009). With one-third of plastics packaging still going to landfill, “we still have a job to do”, said EPRO.
