Collection and recycling
According to the law "Ordinance of Producers' responsibilities for packaging" all companies that produce, import or sell packaged goods are subject to a number of obligations.
The company shall:
- ensure that a collection system exists, through which customers and other end consumers can return used packaging
- ensure that customers receive the information they need about the collection of used packaging
- ensure that collected packaging is recovered, recycled and put to good use as either new raw material or energy.
To make it easier for all companies affected by this law, Sweden's business and industrial sector has joined forces to create a common system for the collection and recycling of packaging. A service organization, FTI, has also been established.
