ACR+ member ENT has published the report “Review of economic and socio-economic studies on recycling topics” carried out for the Joint Research Center of the European Commission. Three main findings emerge. Firstly, market failures are common in waste management given the particularities of waste markets, as for example, the fact that waste might have very low or negative prices. Secondly, the approaches and methods used to assess the economic and socio-economic impacts of recycling policies and pathways found in the literature are multiple and diverse. Thirdly, the number of publications assessing the economic and socio-economic impacts of municipal food/bio-waste and municipal dry recyclables (priority on plastics) in an EU-context are not enough to be able to generalize their findings.
