    Packaging Disposal Regulations.

    Instructions for disposal of packaging material.

    The Packaging (Essential Requirements) Regulations 2015 lays down two key requirements on those that are obligated.

    Essential Requirements

      • Packaging volume and weight must be the minimum amount to maintain necessary levels of safety, hygiene and acceptance for the packed product and for the consumer
      • Packaging must be manufactured so as to permit reuse or recovery in accordance with specific requirements
      • Noxious or hazardous substances in packaging must be minimised in emissions, ash or leachate from incineration or landfill

    Heavy Metal Limits

        • Aggregate heavy metal limits apply to cadmium, mercury, lead and hexavalent chromium in packaging or packaging components subject to some exceptions.
        • The total by weight of such metals should not exceed 100 ppm on or after 30 June 2001

    In the UK sales packaging can be returned at all public collecting points of the municipalities (e.g. recycling centres). Please protect the environment and recycle where available.
