The collection of separately collected HH packaging waste is financed by WMC’s – they are legally and technically responsible for household packaging waste collection. PRO’s get the collected material for free from WMC’s.
The sorting and recycling of the HH packaging waste is financed by the PRO’s (according to their market share). In Slovenia there are all together 6 operating packaging recovery organizations and except Slopak are all other vertically integrated ones.
The collection, sorting and recycling of the industrial/commercial (I) packaging waste is sole financial responsibility of the PRO’s.
The obliged companies have the possibility to enter a PRO (collective scheme) or meet their obligations individually (individual scheme).
The collection network for household packaging is currently established for separate collection of paper, mixed household packaging (plastic packaging, beverage cartons, metal packaging) and glass.
