We gather the proof of recycling and recovery on a collective, global basis:
- on the one hand from the declarations sent to us by our members, those responsible for packaging, on the amount of industrial packaging they have put on to the market in supplying packaged products to their customers, the unpackers.
- on the other hand from the data sent to us by the operators (collectors) on the industrial packaging waste collected from their customers which has been recycled or recovered.
- We then pass this information to the authorities: the Interregional Packaging Commission.
The percentages specified in the legislation are more easily attained by combining recycling results from a large number of companies. Moreover, packaging waste which is easy to collect and recycle can make up for more problematic situations.
