New packaging return & recycling service

In January 2019, the new packaging act has set a new framework for the disposal of packaging in Germany. In order to make it easy for packaging users, Boxon and has launched a pilot project with the German RIGK GmbH: a company founded by the industry for the industry, commerce and agriculture, for the proper and environmentally friendly disposal and recovery of plastic products.

Thanks to the pilot project, Boxon’s customers and their end customers can easily dispose their used Big Bags at one of the many RIGK collection points. Boxon customers benefit from the RIGK services without any own administrative burdens. To use the services, they don’t have to sign an own contract with RIGK, but can simply benefit from Boxon’s license. The license number and sign is printed on to the Big Bags so they can be identified by RIGK upon return.

With this new service, Boxon makes it easy for its customers to access the recycling system. The only requirement is that the bags were purchased from Boxon and that the customer has previously added the service to the order.


Customers improve their environmental footprint

After the return, the big bags go directly into the recycling process: they are shredded and cleaned and processed into re-granulates, which are used to produce new plastic products. In this way, Boxon customers can ensure their used packaging is sensibly reused and improve the environmental performance of their company.

The service is currently available for Big Bag disposal in Germany. That means, that also companies delivering to Germany can use the service, if the Big Bag disposal takes place in Germany.
