Under the Slovakian packaging regulations, manufacturers and importers of packaging and of packaged goods, brand-holders, wholesalers and retailers must pay the costs associated to the take-back of packaging, including the costs associated to reuse, recovery and disposal.
Due to the way in which SCIEX sells packaged products in Slovakia, SCIEX is not classed as a packaging producer in Slovakia for any of the packaging included with SCIEX products. SCIEX is therefore not legally required to join a packaging compliance scheme and pay for the collection and recycling of this packaging when it becomes waste.
SCIEX customers in Slovakia can ensure the recovery of their packaging waste by working with a local packaging waste contractor. You may already have arrangements established with a local waste contractor to handle other types of waste. Please contact your existing contractor through whom you may be able to arrange disposal of your packaging waste, or contact your local authority for details of other commercial and industrial waste packaging collection and recycling provisions close to you.
