    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.
