EPR Club / EXPRA debate - 29 March 2017
EPR Club LUNCH DEBATE
Hosted by EXPRA
How to measure recycling ?
29 March 2017 | 12.30 - 15.00
The debate surrounding the new Circular
Package has highlighted
the issue of how best to calculate waste which is actually recycled. According
to Article 11a (1a) of the Commission’s proposal amending Directive 2008/98/EC
on waste, recycling of both municipal and packaging waste should be based on
the input to the actual recycling process.
proposal be applied, recycling would need to be calculated after a number
of preliminary operations occurring within the recycling plant. In practice, such
calculation method would pose significant consistency and
quality challenges to recycling calculation and reporting, such as lack of exact data at this stage of the process,
difficulties in traceability of the waste (especially in countries which export
the recyclable waste for treatment), accountability, etc.
This EPR Club lunch debate, hosted by EXPRA, will focus on possible
solutions of these challenges from the point of view of different stakeholders directly involved in the recycling calculation process: PROs, Local authorities
a fruitful and lively discussion during the lunch debate, participants are
kindly invited to prepare a short statement (on their position) to be

value/input to the ongoing discussions within the Council with a common
message/conclusion from the participants.
