WASTE – Council Discussions: Waste package

The following is an extract from the minutes of the Environment Council Meeting held on the 19 June 2017:

The presidency informed the Council about the state of play of the ongoing negotiations on the waste legislative package. During the first trilogue held on 30 May, institutions presented their position on the four legislative files and had an initial discussion on the Waste Framework Directive. Some of the outstanding aspects of this directive examined during the trilogue were exemptions, waste hierarchy, food waste, by-products and end-of-waste status. The Council took note of the information provided in preparation for the second trilogue scheduled on 26 June.

Delegations expressed gratitude to the Maltese Presidency for the progress made in these files and supported the incoming presidency for the next round of negotiations in the coming months.
