Packaging logo as a sorting aid

Dual systems offer separation instructions with which distributors can mark their packaging.


As of now, distributors of packaging can take advantage of this free offer and use the printed symbols to help consumers separate and dispose of their packaging correctly. Nine dual systems are participating in the offer in order to increase the collection quantities in the yellow bins and sacks in the long term and, above all, to improve their quality. According to the information, the share of incorrectly disposed waste in these containers is currently still around 30 per cent. With the new manufacturer-independent packaging logos, according to the dual systems, the companies registered with the Central Packaging Register not only do educational work, but also show consumers that they are taking their product responsibility seriously. The simple symbols should make it clear at a glance whether the emptied packaging belongs in the yellow bag, the paper bin or the glass container. Combinations of materials could also be indicated. Furthermore additional QR codes could also refer to further information. The dual systems involved are BellandVision GmbH, Eko-Punkt GmbH & Co. KG, Interseroh Dienstleistungs GmbH, Landbell AG für Rückhol-Systeme, Noventiz Dual GmbH, PreZero Dual GmbH, Reclay Systems GmbH, Veolia Umweltservice Dual GmbH and Zentek GmbH & Co. KG.
