THE PAPER AND BOARD RECYCLING RATE STANDS AT 81% IN ITALY

26-02-2021

In recent years, the separate collection has grown in Italy and, also in 2019, recycling of paper and cartonboard has confirmed the positive trend, improving national performance by 3%.

Thanks to 100 thousand tons more than in 2018, Italy exceeds the quota of 3.5 million tons differentiated. This is what emerges from the Annual Report of Comieco – the Italian Consortium for Recovery and Recycling of Cellulose-based Packaging – on the separate collection and recycling of paper and cartonboard in Italy. These new figures can be explained by two different factors: on the one hand, the increasing commitment of citizens to separate waste collection, and on the other, an efficient supply chain – that of paper and board industry – that has never stopped, not even during lock-down, confirming itself as one of the essential sectors for the Country.

 

Moreover, these values indicate that the targets set by the directive 2018/852/EC for 2025 (75% recycling rate) have already been achieved at national level and they place Italy on the road towards the targets set by the new packaging directive 2018/852/EC for 2030 (85% recycling rate).
