The Turkish Ministry of Environment and Urban Planning has published a Circular on the use of Turkish recyclate, which has been made available by the Bureau of International Recycling.

As has already been made public, Turkey’s recycling industry will need to source at least half of the raw materials it requires from the Turkish domestic market. The country’s environment minister Murat Kurum announced new rules mandating the use of Turkish recyclate on 31 August. The Ministry of Environment and Urban Planning then followed up on the minister's announcement by publishing of a Circular with details of the new regulations on 3 September.

That document has been made available in the original Turkish by the Bureau of International Recycling at https://www.bir.org/news-press/news/item/turkey-limits-recovered-paper-and-plastics-imports-to-50-of-domestic-recyclers-production-capacity.

The Ministry hopes that the new requirement will reduce environmental pollution and promote the separate collection of waste in Turkey.
