    Abstract This study supports the Commission in meeting the requirements of Article 11(6). Results of this study showed that the new recovery targets to be applied from 2018 onwards (based on EU6) maintain a similar level of ambition compared to the ones introduced from 2015 onwards (based on EU10). Additionally, an implementation of separate re-use/preparation for re-use targets faces several difficulties but re-use/preparation for re-use generally should be promoted due to its overall benefits. Finally, output-/material-based targets are not yet recommendable due to an only limited database for assessing the feasibility of such targets accompanied by only limited benefits compared to a further enforcement of selective treatment and increasing collection rates.
