Israeli Environment ministry issues memorandum on packaging law

March 04/2010

March 4 (plasteurope) -- In a move to step up its “recycling revolution”, Israel’s ministry of the environment on 14 February 2010 distributed a memorandum on a draft packaging law to several ministries. Mirroring the European Directive on Packaging and Packaging Waste, the proposed law is steeped in the principle of manufacturer responsibility. Its provisions include encouraging the use of multi-use packaging, clearly marking the packaging with recycling or reuse information as well as the imposition of fines for non-compliance.


The ministry’s proposed law also would oblige packaging manufacturers and importers to meet a recycling target of 60% of the total weight of single-use packaging by 2014. In addition, producers will have to comply with annual recycling targets – 22.5% in the case of plastic. Packaging producers and importers will also be required to finance new models for treating and separating waste at the source.
