Belgium will find it easier to keep within future EU recycling targets. Its 80% recycling rate makes Belgium the top recycler among the EU-28. All other member states still need to make a major effort to keep within the ambitious recycling targets of the EU Commission.
By 2025, 65% of all packaging is to be recycled, and the target for 2030 is even higher, at 70%. By then all used plastic is to become recoverable.
