Euric list three points that matter the most for the recycling industry. The federation asks for a definition of municipal waste, that remains neutral in terms of the status of the operator managing the waste, preserves the quantity criterion and excludes mixed waste from small businesses, office buildings and public buildings. It also calls for a definition of sorting in reference to its objective.
