An EEB Snapshot Report `The quality of National Implementation of the Waste Landfill Directive
The information contained in this report aims to achieve a ‘snapshot’ of where we are
with the implementation of the waste landfilling directive, form the perspective of the
environmental non-governmental organisations (ENGOs) working on national and
local waste policies. The sample of the countries covered includes 13 countries
covering all regions of the EU25 – the North and Nordic, the Southern European and
the New Member States.
It is based on responses to a questionnaire developed by the EEB and responded to by EEB member organisations. The focus of the questions is not entirely self-chosen but developed from the basis of an existing questionnaire on the same issue being applied by the EU Committee of Regions (CoR) with the intent of seeking regional authorities’ feedback on the implementation of the Landfill Directive. The aim of the EEB snapshot report was to give feedback to the CoR final report and to provide input to the ongoing European Commission implementation focus on the Landfill Directive.
