A Producer company has an annual turnover less than €1 Million and/or places less than 10 tonnes of packaging onto the market in a calendar year.
If the above statement applies to your company then under the Waste Management (Packaging) Regulations 2007, you are NOT a Major Producer and are therefore NOT required to comply with all of the obligations associated with one.
However you are a Producer and are obligated to deal with your internal packaging waste responsibly. That means segregating the waste and making it available for recovery/recycling.
Producers are welcome to join Repak on an annual flat fee basis. The 2008 fee is €980 + 21% VAT and benefits include:
Use of Green Dot trade mark
Access to Members conferences, newsletters, legislative updates and best practice information.
Unlike Major Producers, Producers are requested only to submit limited statistical information on their internal packaging waste.
