The producer run take-back scheme for consumer packaging should be in place on 1 January 2016. Careful planning and the acquisition of the right partners through an invitation to tender for the various operations are essential to attaining an efficient end result.

Take-back and recycling of glass

The first phase of extended producer responsibility for packaging will begin in May. At present, the search for glass recycling partners is at an advanced stage. Reception terminals for glass packaging waste will open their doors and recycling will commence on 1 May in accordance with the agreement between Suomen Keräyslasiyhdistys, the Finnish producer organisation for glass packaging, and PYR. The quantity of waste glass take-back will amount to some 15,000 tonnes per year. This is where it begins with the first steps towards extended producer responsibility now being taken.
