||Court of Justice of the European Communities (Fifth Chamber)
Judges Wathelet (President), Timmermans (Rapporteur), Jann, Von Bahr and Rosa
||19 June 2003
European Communities - Environment - Waste - Waste management licensing - Materials capable of economic reutilisation - Council Directive (EC 75/442) - European Parliament and Council Directive (EC) 94/62.
Recycling, within the meaning of art3(7) of Parliament and Council Directive (EC)94-62 (on packaging and packaging waste) was to be interpreted as not including the reprocessing of metal packaging waste when it was transformed into a secondary raw material such as material which met the specification of Grade 3B, but as covering the reprocessing of such waste when it was used to produce ingots, sheets or coils of steel. That interpretation would be no different if the concept of recycling and waste referred to by Council Directive (EC) 75-442 (on waste) was taken into account.
