Impuesto de la UE sobre el plástico no reciclado

La Unión Europea introducirá una tasa sobre los residuos de plástico a partir de enero de 2021 como parte del acuerdo del bloque sobre el fondo de recuperación del coronavirus de 750.000 millones de euros.

Proceeds from the tax will go directly to the EU, rather than the governments which collect them.

From 1 January 2021, a levy will be applied on all non-recycled plastics at a rate of €0.80/kg (€800 a tonne).

Further details on the tax will be worked out in a specific law and then be approved by the European Parliament and Council of the EU.
