A battle has broken out between the Ministry of the Environment (MZP) and the Czech Statistical Office (ČSÚ) over who is to send data on waste to Brussels. Given the dispute, the government has postponed the approval of a plan for the management of waste, which should be brought into operation from 2015. However, according to Environment Minister Richard Brabec, the Cabinet is nevertheless not now doubtful that the plan’s targets, and means to hit those targets, will be attained.

The defined targets of the plan, which determine how waste will be managed over the coming 10 years, have to no-one´s surprise come under fire from both ecologists and waste firms. They have criticised Brabec´s document for making it very probable that waste incineration plants will be constructed at the expense of recycling capacity.

“In terms of recycling, the Czech Republic has selected the lowest target provided for under the European directive. That means that by 2020 there must be recycling or non-energy use of only 35 percent of municipal waste. The previous plan counted with 50 percent,” cautioned Hnutí Duha [Rainbow Movement] waste expert Ivo Kropáček.

Fulfilling the new standing target should not be a problem. Last year, the country recycled or directed into non-energy use 30 percent of municipal waste.
