About us

The European Recycling Industries’ Confederation is the umbrella organisation for European Recycling Industries.

Owing to its strong network of Member European and National recycling Associations, EuRIC acts as the trusted interface between the industry and the European Union and serve as a platform for information, cooperation and exchange of best practices on all European recycling matters.

Through its Members, EuRIC represents companies involved in the collection, processing, recycling, transport and trade of a variety of recyclables (metals, paper, plastics, glass and beyond) across Europe. By servicing its Members, EuRIC contributes to promote recycling, which is first and foremost a business activity driven by an ecosystem of thousands of Small and Medium-size Enterprises (SMEs) and fewer but equally important larger companies. All of them are local and global actors. They provide non-outsourceable job opportunities and produce locally commodities, which are traded and priced globally. Their activities offer massive environmental benefits by saving natural resources and drastically reduces energy consumption and pollution.

EuRIC and its Members supports a value chain approach and strives to nurture constructive relationships at all levels with stakeholders benefiting from recycling activities, including public authorities, manufacturers, producer responsibility schemes, academia and NGOs.
