Legal situation for the recovery of plastic-rich waste

A new BKV brochure provides an up-to-date overview of the status and implementation of the legal situation.

Plastics are not only in the focus of public and political attention, but also in European and German legislation. Especially when products made of plastic have become waste, they are affected by an increasing number of existing and planned legal regulations which go far beyond the known recovery and recycling rates. The variety of regulations at European and national level makes it increasingly difficult to keep track and to identify the different requirements.

This is where a new brochure from the BKV helps all those interested. The brochure not only provides an overview, but also an outlook on what can be expected in the foreseeable future from European and German legislation regarding the management of plastic waste from the packaging, construction, vehicle and electrical/electronic sectors. It is planned to update the overview at regular intervals.

The brochure is available for free download at (only in German).
