Explained: Europe’s new waste prevention and reuse laws

In this brief, the European Environmental Bureau (EEB) provides good examples of how countries have already translated these into national law, boosting repair and designing products that are meant to last longer. This legal briefing provides an overview of the most important new EU waste obligations from The Waste Framework Directive (WFD), The Landfill Directive (LD), The Packaging and Packaging Waste Directive (PPWD) and The Single-Use Plastics Directive (SUP) and good examples of how countries have translated these into national law. The briefing can be used to inspire the ongoing development of national transposition of revised waste directives in order to make sure it is ambitious and in line with sound environmental waste management.
