The costs of running the collection and recovery schemes are covered by the license fee paid by Green Dot Norway's members in dependence on the pro rata consumption declared per period. The fee is then distributed to the five material companies. Every second months member companies submit a form to Green Dot Norway declaring how much packaging they have put into circulation.

Green Dot Norway is a non profit organisation owned by the five material companies.
