CONAI has signed a new agreement with ANCI (National Associaton of Italian Municipalities), lasting five years, from April 2014 to March 2019, establishing the amount of fees to be paid to the municipalities covering a part of the costs of packaging waste separate collection (steel, aluminium, paper, wood, plastic and glass).

The new agreement confirms the basic principles: the ANCI-CONAI Agreement is a voluntary tool for the municipalities, who can choose to join it and give their packaging waste to the consortia chain for recycling, or sell it elsewhere. CONAI also confirmed the guarantee for the take back of packaging materials in the whole country, in every part of Italy, even beyond the achievement of the recycling and recovery objectives, recognizing the full amount of fees to the municipalities.

The new agreement even estabilishes the increasing of the economic fees, plus 17% for all the materials, with particular increase for the glass, with 20% more than in the past.
With the agreement it is confirmed, moreover, the priority of the quality of waste collection, as a prerequisite for the subsequent recycling process.
