Notes on the take-back obligation for packaging material

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 is not typically generated as waste by private end consumers after use,
  • Sales packaging and secondary packaging for which system participation is not possible due to system incompatibility in accordance with Section 7 (5), and
  • Sales packaging of hazardous 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 the return of the packaging material 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 a final consumer, you can hand over the packaging material at the place of actual handover or in its immediate vicinity.
