#28.01.2020 APEAL position on recycling average loss rates 2020

APEAL supports the Commission’s decisions

1) that the measuring of the recycled packaging waste tonnages must occur at the entrance of the recycling operation, being the so-called calculation point.

2) that Member States can only exceptionally derogate from this, when packaging waste tonnages are mixed with other waste flows before reaching the calculation point.
