Latest value chain data, published by the European Close the Glass Loop Platform, show that the EU28 average collection for recycling rate for glass packaging grew to the record rate of 78% in 2019. This represents a growth of 2 percentage points compared to 2018 performance, which means that the glass packaging value chain is delivering on its circular economy ambition. The multi-stakeholder stewardship partnership Close the Glass Loop, of which ACR+ is part, aims to achieve a post-consumer glass container collection target of 90% by 2030, and to ensure that this is recycled into the container glass production loop. The vast majority of the 13.7 million tonnes collected go back to remelt new bottles and jars.
