What you need to do

Packaging compliance applies to you if you meet the threshold above, meaning you are classed a producer and have a certain number of obligations. It can seem a little daunting, but this is where we come in - working together we can take care of all this for you, saving time, money and energy.
  • Register with the appropriate environment agency annually, by 7 April
  • Collect and submit data about your packaging, as accurately as possible
  • Calculate your obligation tonnage
  • Source appropriate Packaging Recovery Notes (PRNs) to match your obligation
  • Provide a certificate of compliance

Are your packaging obligations making an impact?

Together with our members, partners and other major brands we are part of the biggest collaborative push to improve on-the-go recycling of packaging waste in the UK, with the landmark #LeedsByExample and #InTheLoop campaigns. Isn't it about time your packaging compliance obligations made a positive impact too?

"We wouldn't be where we are today without the help of lots of different people, including the team at Ecosurety. Right from the beginning, being a sustainable business has been important to us, and packaging plays a big part. We want our packaging to have the lowest possible impact on the world around us, and we want as many of our bottles, cartons, pots and boxes to be recycled. Ecosurety have been brilliant at ensuring we fill in all the right forms and meet all the right requirements. We couldn't have done it without them!"
