 EU Digest

The EU Digest #8 has just been published by ACR+ Secretariat!

In this issue ACR+ Secretariat gave the floor to one of its members, the Paris Region Waste Observatory (ORDIF), who shares with us a French perspective on deposit systems. Helder de Oliveira, director of ORDIF, explains why, in his opinion, deposit systems should be given more consideration. Indeed, deposit-return systems are one of the instruments which can support the circular economy, by reusing, recycling, or capturing hazardous waste currently released into the environment.
