The European Commission invites members of The Malta Chamber of Commerce, Enterprise and Industry to contribute to the revision of EU Waste Framework Directive.
The objectives of the revision are to limit waste generation, increase re-use, and increase cost-efficient preparing for re-use and quality recycling, including for waste oils and textiles. The revision will explore opportunities for simplification to make legislation clearer and reduce burden on citizens and businesses.
As part of this initiative, the Commission is also seeking feedback on establishing food waste reduction targets. These targets would then be included in the revised Directive.
Those who are interested in this directive are invited to express their views on waste reduction and prevention, food waste reduction, separate collection systems, and regulatory and economic incentives.
