Position Paper on 3rd Working Document of End of Waste Criteria for Biowaste

21st January 2013 | Position Papers

Local, community and neighbourhood composting activities are characterised by using source-separated domestic kitchen waste and green waste, which is both produced and spread locally resulting in benefit to agriculture or ecological improvement and also provides a variety of social and educational benefits. The inputs to these composting and AD activities can all be found on the current positive list that has been drawn up by the JRC, and are source separated and safe low risk materials.

The purpose of this paper is to highlight concern as to how such EoW criteria will negatively impact
such activities, especially financially, despite their clear benefits to environment and society.
