The EU Announce Packaging Recycling Targets 2025 – 2030

The EU have announced legally binding Packaging Recycling Targets through to 2025 -2030, through a series Exended Producer Responsibility Regimes. It seems likely that the UK will adpot the revised targets certainly over the medium term.

The Packaging Recycling Targets are as follows:

  By 2025   By 2030
All packaging   65%   70%
Plastic   50%   55%
Wood   25%   30%
Ferrous metals   70%   80%
Aluminium   50%   60%
Glass   70%   75%
Paper and cardboard   75%   85%

Its worth noting that the UK’s current 2018 wood recycling target is already at 38%, well above the EU Wood target for 2030!! We will be requesting that this target is reset in the UK for the 2019 at a more realistic level.

A full copy of the Proposed and Revised EU Packaging and Packaging Waste Directive is available below.
