Thank you for your visit. We are working hard on bringing the Rinki website to you in English at the end of October.
Meanwhile, here’s a brief description of who we are and what we do:
Finnish Packaging Recycling RINKI Ltd (previously The Environmental Register of Packaging PYR Ltd) Is a non-profit service company established in 1997 and owned by Finnish industry and retail trade.
We provide efficient, sustainable solutions to enable firms to comply with producer responsibility for packaging. For consumers, starting from 1 January 2016, we will provide a network of Rinki eco take-back points for consumer packaging waste for the collection of packaging and for the recycling of glass packaging.
Statutory producer responsibility for packaging applies to producers or firms with a turnover of EUR 1m or more that pack or import packed products for the Finnish market. The aim of the legislation is to save natural resources and to prevent harm to the environment among other objectives.
When a firm makes a contract with Rinki, it transfers its producer responsibility for packaging to producer organisations in the packaging sector. Around 5,000 companies who bear their statutory product responsibility for packaging placed on the Finnish market have joined Rinki. Thanks to a cost-efficient producer responsibility scheme funded by firms, only a small share of total packaging used remains unutilised.
