This article analyses the concepts, the purpose, the evolution and the present state of the waste management and recycling in EU. In view of a green or circular economy, there are several prerequisites for further development of the sector, since the analysis discovers issues of waste management and recycling in Romania compared with some other Member States. There will be also approached and highlighted some aspects regarding the management of the rural municipal waste in Romania. The analysis will lead to some conclusions in regard with chances of the member states to reach the ambitious recycling target of 50% adopted by EU. The revision of the legislative framework has the purpose of waste reduction and therefore sets up an ambitious plan in view of waste management and recycling. This plan consists of some challenging targets to be reached by 2030, such as: the recycling of 65 per cent of municipal waste and of 75 per cent of packaging waste (as common EU targets); reducing landfill to at most 10% of all the waste (binding target). The conclusions reflect recommendations for improving the waste management in Romania and topics of further research.
