Packaging Act

End user

According to the current Packaging Act, we are obligated to take back the following packaging materials from end consumers free of charge pursuant to § 15 Para. 1 Sentence 1 VerpackG:

Transport packaging, such as pallets, bulk packaging, etc.,
Sales and outer packaging that does not typically accumulate as waste at private end consumers after use,
sales and secondary packaging for which system participation is not possible due to system incompatibility pursuant to Section 7 (5), and
sales packaging of pollutant-containing filling goods or
reusable packaging.

Appropriate packaging material is used for the delivery of the product, which we take back free of charge. We thus ensure that the packaging material is returned to the recycling cycle. By informing customers about the return options, we aim to achieve better results in the return of packaging and ensure a contribution to the fulfillment of the European recycling targets in accordance with EU Directive 94/62/EC.

As the end consumer, you can return the packaging material to the place where it was actually handed over or in its immediate vicinity.

Commercial clients

The German Packaging Act (VerpackG) transposes the European Packaging Directive 94/62/EC into German law. It regulates the placing of packaging on the market as well as the return and high-quality recovery of packaging waste. The law replaced the existing Packaging Ordinance (VerpackV) in 2019 and was amended in 2021. The VerpackG2 has been in force since 3 July 2021 – and only in the Federal Republic of Germany.
