FoE slams EC recycling forum
The European Commission's Recycling Forum has produced a draft report on ways to improve the recycling industry's competitiveness. But Friends of the Earth (FoE) called for the group to be disbanded, claiming that it is being used by the Commission's Enterprise Directorate to take control of recycling legislation. The Recycling Forum was established in 1998 (ENDS Report 297, p 54 ). It includes officials from three Directorates - Enterprise, Environment and Research - but Enterprise appears to have taken a lead role.
