At recycl3R we are aware of the great challenge we face as a society when it comes to reducing plastic waste and littering.

To meet this challenge, the European Plastics Pact offers a multi-part platform that accelerates the shift toward the reuse and recycling of single-use plastic products and packaging. It offers a unique platform to exchange ideas, display good practices and discuss challenges, needed to build a new circular default for all to follow.

To do this, the Pact brings together governments and leaders from the entire value chain who work together towards four goals aimed at:

  • Reusability and recyclability: design all plastic packaging and single-use plastic products placed on the market to be reusable where possible and in any case recyclable by 2025.
  • Responsible use of plastics: move towards a more responsible use of plastic packaging and single-use plastic products, aiming to reduce virgin plastic products and packaging by at least 20% (by weight) by 2025.
  • Collection, sorting and recycling: increase the collection, sorting and recycling capacity by at least 25 percentage points by 2025 and reach a level that corresponds to market demand for recycled plastics.
  • Use of recycled plastics: increase the use of recycled plastics in new products and packaging by 2025, with plastics user companies achieving an average of at least 30% recycled plastics (by weight) in their product and packaging range.

At recycl3R we contribute with our experience in new technologies and in digital information services and rewards for recycling, forming part of work group number 3 “Collection, sorting and recycling”.
