NEW EU RULES ON LIMITING IMPORTING AND EXPORTING PLASTIC WASTE

On 22 December, the EU reported that the Commission has adopted new rules on the export, import and intra-EU shipment of plastic waste.  These new rules ban the export of plastic waste from the EU to non-OECD countries, except for clean plastic waste sent for recycling.  Exporting plastic waste from the EU to OECD countries and imports in the EU will also be more strictly controlled.  The new rules take effect from 1 January.
