Online webinar on ‘Collection and Recycling of Plastic Waste’
‘Circular Waste Management’ series II
On Thursday 3 February (14.00–15.30 CET), the Interreg Europe Policy Learning Platform will hold an online webinar on collection and recycling of plastic waste.
Plastics are versatile materials used widely for packaging and across a variety of industry sectors, such as building and construction, automotive and electronics. Their production is predicted to double by 2040 compared to current levels. However, plastic production, use and discharge are still “linear”, with less than 6% of plastics being recycled. Almost 26 million tonnes of plastic waste are generated in Europe each year. Today, plastic waste is mostly incinerated, exported or landfilled and often ends up in the environment. Europe is thus determined to halt plastic pollution by addressing single-use plastic items, separate collection, recycling, littering and more.
This webinar will present municipalities and regions with examples of solutions addressing the challenges of plastic collection and recycling and will showcase how local businesses are creating circular value chains allowing better plastic recycling. Three good practices will be presented to which local and regional authorities can refer for enhancing their plastic collection, prevention and recycling rates in compliance with the EU Directives and in line with the principles of circular economy. The webinar will close with an interactive panel discussion on the presented topics.
