European Court decision on meaning of "waste"

In an important decision, the European Court of Justice (ECJ) has given a broad definition to the meaning of "waste" in EC waste legislation. The decision in Tombesi (C-304/94, together with joined cases C-330/94, C-342/94 and C-224/95, ECJ, 25 June 1997) is in line with the Court's case law, but is significant because it is the first to be concerned with amended definitions of the term. Tombesi confirms that substances sold or sent for recycling or reuse still fall within the waste controls established by EC legislation.
