Protect us from pollutants: EU Ministers must reject Commission’s weak proposal on toxic chemicals in waste

15.6.2006 - Brussels

The European Environmental Bureau (EEB), Europe’s largest federation of environmental citizens’ organisations, and the International POPs Elimination Network (IPEN), today called on EU Environment Ministers to reject the European Commission’s current proposals and establish a protective standard for persistent organic pollutants (POPs) in waste. The Commission is currently asking Member States to approve an extremely weak policy which would permit high levels of POPs in waste.
