EuRIC – The European Recycling Industries’ Confederation is the umbrella organisation for recycling industries. Through its Member Federations from 21 EU & EFTA countries, EuRIC represents across Europe over:
- 5,500+ companies generating an aggregated annual turnover of about 95 billion €, including large companies and SMEs, involved in the recycling and trade of various resource streams
- 300,000 local jobs which cannot be outsourced to third EU countries
- Million tons of waste recycled per year (metals, paper, glass, plastics, textiles, tyres and beyond)
By turning wastes into resources, recycling is the link which reintroduces recycled materials into the value chains again and again. Recyclers play a key role in bridging resource efficiency, climate change policy and industrial transition.
