Packaging Recovery Information

The EU Packaging and Packaging Waste Directive (94/62/EC) obliges national governments to ensure that systems are established for the collection of used packaging for reuse or recovery. In most Member States, initiatives have been set up for the partial or total funding of these systems, the majority of which use the Green Dot symbol on packaging to show that the brand owner or importer of the packaged product has paid its contribution to the organisation responsible for the system.
