Repackaging

“By 2030, EU states would have had to recycle 70% of their municipal waste, 80% of product packaging, 60% of plastic packaging, 60% of plastics, 80% of wood and 90% of ferrous metals, aluminium and glass.
But the package was withdrawn by the incoming EU president, Jean-Claude Juncker, after industry protests. The backlash that provoked from environmentalists led Juncker’s deputy, Frans Timmermans, to promise a revised proposal that would be “broader, more ambitious [and] more effective”.” (http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/nov/20/eu-drops-food-waste-marine-litter-reduction-targets-leak-reveals)

The package itself needed 80% recycling.
