Over the past two decades, there has been an upward trend in recycling performance in the EU, according to the Alliance for Beverage Cartons and the Environment (ACE). The group has found that carton recycling has been witnessing a steady rise in the United Kingdom as well as in the new EU member states. However, further steps still need to be taken so as to ban packaging from landfills.
The Alliance for Beverage Cartons and the Environment has been contributing to EU legislation, policy, and standard setting by promoting renewable packaging solutions. Some of the key members of the Alliance for Beverage Cartons and the Environment include carton producers such as SIG Combibloc, Tetra Pak, and Elopak.
Here are the key takeaways from the ACE findings:
The director general of Alliance for Beverage Cartons and the Environment Bertil Heerink said that the ACE is absolutely determined and dedicated towards fulfilling the objectives of the Circular Economy Package of the European Commission. ACE has been working in alliance with RECycling of Used Plastics (RECOUP) and On-Pack Recycling Label (OPRL) to support recycling in EU.
