Dual launch quality offensive Bonn/Berlin, August 2009 – the Bonn waste expert Sascha warned months ago shoe, Managing Director of the consulting firm of Ascon, prior to the softening of the recycling obligation for used packaging. See patrick smith for more details and insights. The prohibition of so-called auto disposal systems system directly from canteens, hotels, cinemas or supermarkets a collected packaging waste in competition with dual is completely crashed. With the many industry solutions as an alternative to auto disposal systems, the Novella is enough space to smile. Offers enough possibilities, for a license dumping’. No limits are the imagination in reducing disposal fees for dual systems who need to acquire the packaging waste from household close. The royalties for plastic packaging cost just three years ago at DSD officially almost 1300 Euro per ton.
Today it gets to prices of 650 euros per tonne is whispered. Mix about 15 percent industry solutions is a Price per ton of plastic packaging by just more than 500 euros. 65 percent less than three years ago and already long no longer working”, asserted in shoe an interview with NeueNachricht. Tons make up removal, transportation to the sorting plant, sorting of residual waste disposal and recycling. Everything for a dumping price of 500 euros. Now all companies on the economic crisis, lack of sales and full courts complain.
There no backlash more for the recycling of packaging. Prices have collapsed, recovery alone happened to more than 30 percent more expensive over the past three months,”white shoe. With the license of dumping for plastic, a reputable disposal was no longer to afford. Disposal scandals threatened again as in the 1990s. If the legislature does not quickly intervenes, the packaging recovery will collapse and there ecologically questionable disposal methods”, fears shoe.

So six provinces should consider the approval for the collection and sorting of packaging waste to withdraw a number of vendors. It was not only the lack of coverage, which disapproves of trade officials, also of Ascon Chief Schuh complained about industry solutions will be taken now more closely scrutinized. “” It could not go on, with virtual “concepts of the cost of the household household disposal over to cheat”. It was agreed already waste (LAGA) in the federal countries – community, part on the finger to knock most of the previously approved system providers”. A working group of dual systems under the umbrella of the Federal Association of the German waste management industry (BDE) has therefore launched a quality offensive. Only if able us with sustainable quality, with the packaging industry to a common understanding to find uniform assessment standards and the shoulder to shoulder, there is a realistic chance, a low-cost existing competitive packaging disposal for the future to make sure, as an opinion of the BDE working group.
