Everything about SUP storage and waste management contribution for packaging

  • Extra costs for disposables?

    You may have noticed: as of January 2023, a new law has come into effect that has made some of our products more expensive. This is all due to the 'SUP storage' and 'Packaging Waste Management Contribution' that we are required to pay starting from January. We will explain to you here how this works exactly and how high these additional costs are.

  • Why are some products becoming more expensive?

    The changes are part of the well-known SUP Directive. This directive includes a package of measures to reduce the share of plastic in litter. On July 3, 2021, the first measures were implemented. This included a ban on items such as plastic plates, straws, and stirrers. Additional measures have been introduced since January. There are two things involved here: the waste management contribution for packaging and the SUP storage.

  • SUP storage

    The SUP storage applies to single-use food packaging that is partially or entirely made of plastic. This also includes cardboard disposables that have a thin (bio)plastic coating. As a producer and importer, we are required to pay a contribution for all SUP products we bring to the Dutch market. Unfortunately, we have to pass on these costs to our customers. The indicated SUP storage applies to plastic-containing disposables. These additional costs have already been incorporated into our current website prices.

Good to know: Customers who commission us to produce printed (SUP) disposables with their logo or corporate identity are themselves considered the producer/importer. For this reason, they are also responsible for the declarations.

  • Waste management contribution for packaging

    When we talk about packaging, it refers to all products, according to Afvalfonds Verpakkingen (2022), made from any kind of material that can be used for enclosing, protecting, loading, delivering, and offering other products, from raw materials to finished goods, throughout the entire process from producer to user or consumer. The Packaging Waste Management Contribution has different rates depending on the type of material. The rate is determined by the costs involved in collecting, separating, and recycling the specific material. Therefore, the more sustainable the packaging, the lower the contribution! These potential additional costs have resulted in price increases for certain products. The more sustainable the product and its packaging, the lower the packaging waste management contribution.

Plastic-free: Better for nature and wallet!

The purchase of plastic-containing disposables has become slightly more expensive as of January 2023. In the Netherlands, for example, you pay an additional €2.30 for every 1,000 snack containers (with plastic coating). In addition, there are also the costs of the potential waste management contribution on top of this.

The potential additional costs of both the SUP storage and the waste management contribution have already been included in the prices you see on our website. If the SUP storage applies to a product, it will be indicated on the product page. This information can also be found on the invoice.

Fortunately, there are plenty of plastic-free alternatives available on the market. Transitioning to plastic-free options is not only good for the environment but also for your wallet. Additionally, there are increasingly more measures being introduced for plastic-containing food packaging. In some cases, they may eventually be banned.
