    Amended waste directive passed by MEPs
    February, 2007 Last week members of the European parliament (MEPs) voted to accept the amended Waste Directive, which may affect users of Canon printer cartridges or HP printer cartridges.Put forward by Caroline Jackson MEP, the amendments include a number of new measures, including the introduction of waste targets to preserve waste levels at those produced in 2008 by 2012, reports Environmental Data Interactive Exchange (EDIE).”What we’re suggesting is very modest, not terribly ambitious, but it’s going to be a lot of work trying to get that agreed by the European Commission,” said Ms Jackson.”It’s a difficult area because we don’t have enough information on how much waste is being produced,” she added in an interview with EDIE.The amended directive also establishes cross-community recycling targets with require the recycling of 70 per cent of construction, industrial and demolition waste recycled and 50 per cent of municipal waste, which may include used Epson printer cartridges for 2020.Unless passed by the European Union’s Council of Ministers, the amended directive will be returned for a second reading to the European Parliament.
