According to the Packaging Act, every manufacturer or trader or commercial importer of a product must participate in a dual system and submit a data report to the LUCID packaging register at regular intervals.
The dual systems in Germany are responsible for the disposal of sales packaging (usually free of charge for private households). We commission regional disposal companies with the disposal and recycling, optimally with the recycling of the sales packaging in private households and commercial sources. We all know: Germany is in a leading position regarding the seperation of waste.
This system is financed by the producer of the packaging waste.
In your function as a manufacturer or retailer of a product, you determine the packaging weights generated by your products in Germany and divide them into different material fractions:
Beverage carton Packaging
Other composite packaging
Other materials (e.g. wood)
You then report these packaging quantities to the packaging register LUCID and to your dual system. We will be happy to assist you and take care of the licensing throughout Germany!
