Circular Economy – Council and Parliament Reach Provisional Agreement

Last month, the Estonian Presidency of the Council of the EU reached a provisional agreement with representatives of the European Parliament on all four legislative proposals of the waste package, also known as the circular economy package. The agreed waste legislative proposals establish binding waste reduction targets and updated rules to decrease waste generation, ensure a better control of waste management, encourage the reuse of products and improve recycling in all EU countries. After formal approval by the Council in the first quarter of 2018, the new legislation will be submitted to the European Parliament for a vote at first reading and to the Council for final adoption.
