On 2 December 2015, the European Commission adopted its ambitious Circular Economy package with four legislative proposals on waste, including a proposal to review the Waste Framework Directive. The Commission's aim is to reduce the amount of waste generated by encouraging improvements in the way waste is managed and recycled at Member State level. To do this, it has set several targets which include the recycling of municipal and packaging waste, and reducing the amount sent to landfill. This proposal is currently making its way through the EU's decision-making process. On 14 March 2017, the European Parliament (Plenary) voted on the Environment Committee report. Negotiations will now start with the Council, with the first Trilogue discussions scheduled for 30 May 2017.
