Finland: packaging compliance update
by Ellen Thornton at 09:51 in Packaging, Emerging

Rinki is the packaging compliance scheme in Finland. Only producers with an annual turnover exceeding €1 million are obligated. Recyclable plastic bottles, beverage cans and glass bottles have a deposit associated and hence aren't charged a recycling fee.

Submission date: 28th February 2018 for annual report.

Changes: From 1st January 2018, a new tonne-based customer fee will be invoiced based on the packaging the company placed in the market the previous year. Hence, companies no longer have to report their turnover data to Rinki. Furthermore, recycling fees have changed and will apply to the 2018 submission. ​​
