Packaging requirements

Obligations may be fulfilled by individual compliance, joint action with other producers or through a recovery organisation.

The Valorlux collective scheme was formally approved in 2000 to handle the collection and sorting of household packaging waste.

The approval says, among other things, that the main focus remains on household packaging waste, but Valorlux should also handle ‘similar packaging waste' from any commercial end-users who request this.

Thresholds

The Packaging Regulations in Luxembourg applies to any person placing products on the market or who has them packed in Luxembourg. There are no thresholds for companies who only handle small quantities of packaging.
