Questions & Answers
Regional Issues: In many EU member states municipalities or retailers sell WEEE they collect to 'non producers' which seems contrary to the principle of producer responsibility. Could you comment?  Answered on 24-Sep-11
Serbia: Does the WEEE Regulation allow for a non-Serbian company that does not import itself to register as producer and take on the responsibilities imposed on producers by the Regulation? And if so, how would it be able to handle this tax requirement?   Answered on 19-Jul-11
Bulgaria: Is the new WEEE register operational and is it possible for a non-Bulgarian company to register as a producer?  Answered on 18-Jul-11

Green Growth package incl. proposal for new waste stream directives launched
The Commission has today launched its Green Growth package. The aim is to link waste policy with resource efficiency through the “circular economy”, which is meant to reduce resource consumption, maximise reuse and recycling, and improve security of supply and create jobs by reprocessing waste materials within Europe. “Waste policy is zero waste policy”, says Environment Commissioner Potocnik.

90 million tonnes of food wasted every year
16 October was World Food Day, and the European Commission used the occasion to reaffirm its intention – set out in its Roadmap to a resource-efficient Europe – of halving food waste by 2020. Globally, 1.3 billion tonnes of food is wasted every year, including 90 million tonnes in Europe.

2011 recycling results show slight improvement
EUROSTAT has just published packaging and packaging waste data for 2011. With the economy recovering a little, the amount of packaging placed on the market in EU-27* in 2011 was 80.2 million tonnes, a little less than the 2006 figure. This was a 1.9% increase on 2010, when the tonnage placed on the market was a little less than the 2005 tonnage. The EU-15** tonnage rose by 1.4% to 71.0 million tonnes in 2011, a little higher than the 2005 figure. Tonnage in the twelve “new” member states rose by 6.0% to 9.2 million tonnes.
