Packaging waste contains valuable raw materials. With the help of effective recycling, these raw materials can be processed and converted into new products. Recycling is helping to tackle the challenges of ever-dwindling resources as well as to protect the environment. Compliance schemes such as Reclay Systems GmbH - ensure that used packaging is recycled. They take responsibility for ensuring that packaging is picked up from private households and similar points of waste origin, sorted, processed and used as a raw material for new products and packaging. The recycling quotas are legally prescribed for many types of materials in Germany. The compliance schemes must meet these quotas and keep an annual volume flow record. In accordance with the Packaging Ordinance, the following quotas apply for the recycling of materials: Glass 75%, tinplate 70%, aluminium 60%, paper and cardboard 70%, compounds 60%. For plastics, there is a material recycling quota of 36% and an overall recycling quota of 60%. The purpose of Reclay Systems GmbH is to provide the best recycling possible for packaging waste, and therefore the highest material recycling possible. The Reclay Systems GmbH already exceeds the legally stipulated quotas and is thereby making a major contribution to protecting the environment.
