You can now apply for the European Paper Recycling Award 2019.

The European Paper Recycling Award distinguishes between two main categories to ensure a fair comparison among the different entries.

Information and Education: We are looking for projects and initiatives that were set up to raise awareness on paper recycling among a specific target group. Examples: a paper recycling school campaign, a municipality awareness-raising programme on sorting paper for recycling etc.

Technology Improvement and R&D: This category includes innovative projects to improve paper recycling technology.


Eligible projects, initiatives or campaigns will be evaluated based on the following criteria:

  • Relevance and originality
  • Achievements
  • Possibility to reproduce the project
  • Cost effectiveness


The award ceremony, where the winners will be announced, will take place in the European Parliament in Brussels on 21 January 2020. Its programme can be found here.
