ACR+ members Reloop and Zero Waste Europe have published a new study "Mixed Waste Sorting to meet the EU´s Circular Economy Objectives" which shows that applying sorting systems to mixed waste prior to thermal treatment and landfilling can significantly support Europe’s climate objectives and contribute to achieving ambitious plastics and municipal waste recycling targets.  
 
The report suggests actions to enable a quick transition towards greater circularity, including the use of mixed waste sorting systems of a defined quality to remove recyclable materials prior to incineration; define ‘treatment of waste prior to landfilling’ in the Landfill Directive to require sorting of mixed waste including a definition of sorting; and a ban on incineration and disposal of recyclable/reusable materials through the revision of the Packaging and Packaging Waste Directive and the Waste Framework Directive.
