The Packaging Regulation is part of the sub-statutory regulations of the Recycling and waste management legislation.
Packaging waste should be avoided in the first place. In addition, the reuse of packging, recycling and other forms of recovery is given priority over the disposal of packaging waste. Manufacturer and distributor of goods in packages that end up in private consumers, will be obliged to participate in the comprehensive return system.
KÖHL has decided to join the collection system RESY. The return is handled through all companies which are listed at the german Vfw GmbH. Packages shall be marked in accordance with the RESY icon.
