Compliance schemes

Compliance schemes organise the collection, sorting and recycling of sales packaging. While a compliance scheme means a system operator, the dual system refers to the overall system of collection of near-household packaging as a second system in addition to the existing public waste disposal system. In accordance with the Packaging Ordinance, every manufacturer and operator who first distributes sales packaging which typically ends up with private end consumers is obliged to participate in a compliance scheme – what is referred to as an exemption system Through its company Reclay Systems GmbH, the Reclay Group operates two compliance schemes, thereby ensuring legally compliant packaging licensing and the fulfilment of all legal requirements of the Packaging Ordinance. As a compliance scheme, Reclay Systems GmbH commissions disposal companies to pick up packaging waste that has been thrown away by end consumers on a regular basis. The reusable materials recovered are then processed and recycled in sorting and recycling plants. Any manufacturer/distributor who does not license its sales packaging properly is violating the Packaging Ordinance. As a result, this can lead to high fines or a nationwide ban on delivering sales packaging to private end consumers. The Reclay Group would be delighted to advise you on all matters related to your packaging licensing.
