DS Smith report recommends source segregation.

DS Smith, a UK-based recycled-content paperboard producer, collaborated with White Space Strategy on a 48-page report titled "Wasted paper: a path to better recycling." The report aims to assist the EU in reaching a 90 percent packaging paper recycling rate by 2030. Recommendations include implementing source segregation, ensuring consistent national-level collection, providing clear recycling guidelines, and enforcing long-lasting recycling legislation. DS Smith emphasizes source segregation for higher-quality recyclables. The report also calls for a continentwide education campaign with consistent product labeling to inform the public about recycling benefits. Niels Flierman, head of paper and recycling at DS Smith, highlights the environmental and economic gains of achieving a 90 percent recycling rate by 2030.
