Welcome to the website of the Packaging Waste Fund
The Packaging Waste Fund (Afvalfonds Verpakkingen) was established by producers and importers to collectively meet the extended producer responsibilities as stated in the Packaging Decree and Packaging Agreement. It is a not-for-profit organisation governed by a board of directors, who are themselves elected by producers and importers.
In the Netherlands, and other EU countries, producers and importers of packaged products are legally responsible for a minimum use of packaging and for the collection and recycling of packaging waste.
