Companies that have joined producer organisations must submit data concerning the packaging of the products that they have placed on the market to Rinki. How and when will this packaging data need to be reported? We are here to help.
Companies with producer responsibility are legally obliged to organise the collection and recycling of the packaging of all products that they place on the market. This ensures that the packaging materials can be recycled into new packaging and products as efficiently as possible.
When companies join the producer responsibility scheme, they transfer their obligation to collect and recycle their packaging to the producer organisations. Companies are left with two duties:
- Reporting their packaging data to Rinki
- Paying the recycling and customer fees determined on the basis of their packaging data.
Reporting packaging data on time is essential for the producer responsibility scheme to work as it directly affects the system’s financing, invoicing and operations.
Your company will not be left alone to report packaging data. We are here to help.
