NL: List of exempted logistic aids renewed

25 November 2014

In the Netherlands some types of packaging are exempted from the contribution to the Packaging Waste Fund. Among the exemptions are the so called logistic aids. The Packaging Waste Fund has renewed the list of logistic aids so that the list now contains unambiguous definitions.
The list includes, among others, pallets, Intermediate Bulk Containers, drums, boxes, big-bags and reels. When appropriate, the list gives sizes that indicate when a package is defined as a logistic aid and is subsequently exempt from the contribution. For all the packaging on the list it is irrelevant what material the packaging is made of (Newsletter Packaging Waste Fund, November 2014).
