Rinki eco take-back pointMore detailed
“It is incredibly hard to recycle packaging. For example, there are only about 1,850 Rinki eco take-back points in Finland.“ “If it’s not packaging, you can’t take it to the Rinki eco take-back point. It’s sooo complicated.“ “Is this packaging? Oh, it is. And it’s plastic. So is this OK to take there? It’s so hard.“
It’s not hard at all.
If nothing else, please remember these things!
FLATTEN CARDBOARD PACKAGING
Flatten cardboard packaging and put it together in one pack. Cardboard packaging left unflattened takes up a lot of space and fills the container quickly.
A DRINKING GLASS IS NOT PACKAGING
Only take glass packaging such as bottles and jars to the Rinki eco take-back point. Drinking glasses are made of a different type of glass and cannot be used in the production of new glass packaging.
CLEAN PAINT TINS, PLEASE
You can take metal paint tins to the Rinki eco take-back point with other metal packaging provided they are empty, clean and dry. There should only be a very thin coat of dry paint inside, no more than the thickness of a brush stroke.
NO TOYS, BUCKETS OR SPADES
You can take empty, clean and dry plastic household product packaging to the Rinki eco take-back points. Other plastic products do not belong in the packaging collection.
