Rinki collects packaging statistics from more than 4,000 companies

Finnish Packaging Recycling RINKI Ltd compiles annual packaging statistics from more than 4,000 companies with producer responsibility and combines and submits the data to the Pirkanmaa ELY Centre for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment.

In addition to the packaging data, Rinki also reports the amount of recycled and reused packaging materials compiled by the producer organisations to the Pirkanmaa ELY Centre.

Publication of the statistics

The Pirkanmaa ELY Centre compiles the official packaging statistics for Finland from the data reported by Rinki and other organisations and submits the data to the EU Commission. It also publishes the packaging statistics on its website. Rinki publishes the actual recycling and reuse rates on channels such as its website after receiving the official statistics from the Pirkanmaa ELY Centre.
