Packaging companies
YOU MAKE IT POSSIBLE

For 20 years we have been working to ensure that packaging companies comply with the provisions set forth in the Spanish Packaging and Packaging Waste Act 11/1997. We do so with enthusiasm and under criteria of effectiveness, efficiency and sustainability.

 

If you market, distribute or import products in single-use glass packaging and you are responsible for their first placing on the market, you must join a Collective System of Extended Producer Responsibility (SCRAP).

 

Over 8,000 companies finance the recycling of their glass packagings via the Green Dot system

Find out the member companies'
obligations
When you become part of the SCRAP, you have to include the Green Dot symbol on the labels. This guarantees citizens and public administrations that the packaging complies with regulations and the packaging company finances the waste management system.
Once a year, before 28th February, you must inform us of the number and weight of glass packagings you place on the market. The tool employed for this is the Packaging Declaration Sheet. Based on this sheet, we calculate the contribution you have to make to the system and the amount of waste that needs to be managed.

Waste prevention and
ecodesign

The best waste is no waste. With this in mind, at Ecovidrio we implement Business Prevention Plans (PEPs), rogrammes for packaging companies to define objectives and actions aimed at reducing the environmental impact of packaging.

 

We encourage any company to minimise their impact and grow in sustainability. In addition, all companies that generate over the following quantities of waste must implement prevention measures:

250t
if exclusively
50t
if exclusively
30t
if exclusively
21t
if exclusively
16t
if exclusively
14t
if exclusively
350t
if several materials are involved and each of them do not exceed individually the above quantities

if several materials are involved and each of them do not exceed individually the above quantities

There are two options for companies to comply with this legal obligation, albeit the responsibility for compliance always lies with the packaging company.
