Poland's parliament backs waste law changes

The Polish parliament has accepted an amendment of waste law that will give local authorities better control over waste as well as transposing three EU directives. The laws in question concern incineration of waste and packaging waste. In concrete terms, the new law splits responsibilities for waste management between local authorities and specialised companies. Both will now have to cooperate in developing recovery and recycling infrastructure. It does not contain the controversial idea of forcing people to pay local authorities a fee for the latter to handle waste. See Polish environment ministry.
