Packaging – any material, container or wrapping, used for or in connection with the containment, transport, handling, protection, promotion, marketing or sale of any product or substance, including such packaging as may be prescribed.
Re-use Packaging Packaging must be conceived and designed for reuse Packaging must make minimum 2 trips or rotations Re-use loop must be documented Non-Reusable Pkg Suitable for a Single trip Reusable Packaging Suitable for Several Trips Reuse
Inputs and Outputs Input Packaging Is removed by you or on your behalf Reported in Section 1 of form Output Packaging Is applied/supplied and/or imported by you or on your behalf Reported in Section 2 of form
Section 1: Inputs 1.1Irish Sourced Input Packaging (Supplier is RoI based) 1.2Imported Input Packaging (Supplier is based outside RoI) 1.3Internal Packaging Waste Management What happens to this waste? How is it disposed of?
Inputs – Sections 1.1 & 1.3 Your company receives packaged goods from an Irish Supplier. You must remove shrink wrap, outer cardboard boxes and pallets so that you can sell the goods onwards. In a reporting period, you remove 10 tonnes of shrink wrap, 25 tonnes of cardboard and 65 tonnes of wooden pallets. All of the cardboard and plastic ends up as waste on your floor. The cardboard and 8 tonnes of shrink wrap is recycled through the RPS scheme while 2 tonnes of plastic is sent for disposal. 60 tonnes of pallets are recycled through the RPS Scheme, while the remainder is sold to the local farmer for fence posts.
