Packaging Compliance in Denmark
Collection and Recycling Arrangements in Denmark
SThrough its packaging regulations, rather than place obligations on packaging producers to finance the costs of collection and recycling of packaging, Denmark has opted for internalisation of packaging waste management costs rather than the construction of an industry-run funding system.
Therefore, in Denmark, responsibility for financing and establishing systems for the collection and recovery of both household and commercial packaging waste lies with municipalities. Please contact your local authority for details of waste packaging collection and recycling provisions close to you, or a local waste contractor through whom you may be able to arrange disposal.
