What does paper producer responsibility mean?

Producer responsibility is based on the Waste Act (642/2011, section 6, paragraphs 46-67) and aims to promote recycling and reduce waste. 

Who has paper producer responsibility?​

All professional paper manufacturers and importers of paper and printed paper products are obliged to organise waste management of recovered paper.  Paper collection must be organised in a way that every consumer can return newspapers, magazines, catalogues, office papers and other similar paper products in collection bins free of charge.  Read more: www.environment.fi​​
