The Czech Republic is among the top five EU countries in waste
sorting. Industry and Trade Minister Karel Havlíček said that
the government cabinet is launching a massive promotion of
recycling by changing legislation, incentives and financial support
for investment. CZK 4.4bn has been allocated for recycling in the
National Recovery Plan (NRP). The NPO also includes funding for
recycling infrastructure and circular solutions in companies. The country already is one of the lowest generators of waste in the EU and this initiative should help strengthen its position among states that aim to produce as little waste as possible and recycle majority of the rest.
