Who should join?

According to the Ley de Envases y Residuos de Envases de 1997 (1997 Packaging and Waste Packaging Law), packers have the obligation to finance and put in place a selective system of collection - and recycling - of the glass packagings that they put on the market.

Joining the EPR guarantees the compliance with the law and promotes a sustainable, efficient and effective model. 

Two decades have passed since we put in place a universal, free, public service for the citizen. Our achievements and those of society are also those of our member companies. 

For this reason, all packaging companies who sell single use glass packagings should join. What’s is more, distributors and importers of products packaged in glass can also form part of our Extended Producer Responsibility based on the principles of the circular economy.
