The system is financed by fillers and importers of packaged goods.
The total fee of each packaging consists of two parts:
- The fixed fee, which is 0,04 eurocent per packaging (that is per sales unit or per item of packaging) and
- The weight-based fee, which is different for each packaging material.
The system operates practically at no profit, therefore all revenues are used to finance the municipal recovery projects, which are carried out in cooperation with the system, the communication and the overhead expenses and finally some R&D projects.
