The European Union proposed on Wednesday, as it pushes to cut the amount of trash produced by its 500 million citizens, Europeans will need to recycle 70 percent of urban waste and 80 percent of packaging waste by 2030. Janez Potocnik, the EU’s environment commissioner said, “If we want to compete we have to get the most out of our resources, and that means recycling them back into productive use, not burying them in landfill as waste.”The proposals would build on the EU’s current target to recycle half of all its trash by 2020, but member states are falling short of that.
