ReSimple is made up exclusively of producers. Financing comes directly from the material fee that producers must finance.
Resimple interacts with the different municipalities to finance the recyclable fraction.
The coverage obligations for house-to-house collection model start in year 1 (2023) with 10% and propose to reach 80% in year 12. Those Municipalities that do not receive house-to-house collection in year one, and it have more than 250 thousand inhabitants with corrected population (decrease every year), Resimple will have to attend with a reception and storage facility available, that will be managed 100% by informal sector (waste pickers).
In this way, it is expected to achieve national coverage and solution to citizens with some alternative before the 5th year throughout the Chilean territory. Collective management systems.
Producers who assume the fulfillment of their obligations collectively must do so through the incorporation or incorporation of a legal entity that does not distribute profits among its associates, which will be responsible to the authority. A such legal entity shall have as its exclusive purpose the management of waste from priority products, and in no case shall it be understood as a public interest organization for the purposes of Law No. 20,500. Collective management systems shall be integrated exclusively by producers.
Large Collective Household Systems or GRANSIC: collective management systems, composed of 20 or more unrelated persons, formed to comply with the obligations imposed on household packaging producers by the DS12.
Individual management systems and collective management systems composed of less than 20 unrelated producers, according to Article 8, may meet their collection and recovery goals only with the waste into which the packaging introduced into the market by the producers that make up such management systems becomes. This does not apply to GRANSICs, which may meet their collection and recovery goals with any packaging waste.
ReSimple is the 1st GRANSIC in conformation that will comply with the Extended Producer Responsibility Law (REP Law) for packaging.
As stated in the REP Law and Supreme Decree 12 (DS12), we are in charge of organizing, financing, connecting and synergizing the recycling of containers and packaging generated by producers to then promote the collection, pre-treatment and recovery of the same.
Our purpose is to help and motivate companies, institutions and individuals to live in a more sustainable country for current and future generations.
This project was born in 2019 under the auspices of the AB-Chile guild with the objective of forming a Collective Management System of containers and packaging to meet the goals and obligations of the REP Law.
Since April 2021, we have been in the process of processing in the institutions of free competition in our country (TDLC and FNE) to later request authorization from the Ministry of Justice and the Ministry of Environment. We expect to finish this process in July 2022 in order to present our management plan to the Ministry of the Environment before September 2022, as required by the DS12.
ReSimple will be responsible for compliance with the goals and obligations of the companies affected by the REP Law in the household and non-household categories.

What is the REP Law?
Law 20.920, framework law for waste management, Extended Producer Responsibility and Promotion of Recycling, known as REP Law, aims to reduce the generation of waste and promote its reuse, recycling and other types of recovery, through the establishment of extended producer responsibility and other waste management instruments, in order to protect people’s health and the environment.
EPR: It is an economic instrument for waste management.
Obliges producers of certain products to organize and finance the management of waste derived from the products marketed in the country.
One of the principles that inspire the REP Law is the “polluter pays” principle, in which the generator of waste is responsible for it, as well as for internalizing the costs and negative externalities associated with its management.
Extended producer responsibility will be applicable to those who introduce into the domestic market consumer goods packaged or packaged composed of at least one of the following materials: cardboard – paper, plastics, metals, beverage cartons and glass.
They will not be subject to the REP:
-Producers that qualify as micro-enterprises, as defined by Law No. 20,416.
-Producers that introduce in the market less than 300 kilograms of containers per year.
Collective management systems.
The producers that assume the compliance of their obligations in a collective manner, shall do so through the constitution or incorporation of a legal entity that does not distribute profits among its associates, which shall be responsible before the authority. A such legal entity shall have as its exclusive purpose the management of waste from priority products, and in no case shall it be understood as a public interest organization for the purposes of Law No. 20,500.
Collective management systems shall be integrated exclusively by producers.
