Information on the obligation to take back packaging material
According to the current Packaging Act in accordance with § 15 (1) sentence 1 VerpackG, we are obliged to take back the following packaging materials from end consumers free of charge:
– transport packaging, such as pallets, bulk packaging, etc.,
– sales and outer packaging that is typically not generated as waste by private end users after use,
– sales and outer packaging for which participation in the system is not possible due to system incompatibility under Paragraph 7(5), and
– sales packaging of products containing harmful substances, or
– Reusable packaging.
Upon delivery of the product, appropriate packaging material will be used, which we will take back free of charge. In this way, we ensure the return of the packaging material to the recycling cycle. By providing information on the return options, better results in the return of packaging are to be achieved and a contribution to the fulfilment of the European recycling targets according to EU Directive 94/62/EC is to be ensured.
You can hand in the packaging material as an end user at the place of actual handover or in its immediate vicinity.
