Rinki finds out: SUP Directive and Waste Act

The amended Waste Act will mean that companies with producer responsibility will have new obligations: pay a SUP fee, report on their use of single-use plastics and inform consumers. Thousands of companies will also come under the producer responsibility system, as the one-million-euro turnover threshold will be removed. In terms of service packaging, the party with the producer responsibility will change, explains Rinki’s Customer Service Manager Maija Peltola.
