“Check for Recycling” test for packaging

With the new “Check for Recycling” service from Interseroh, companies can find out how well product packaging can be collected separately, sorted and recycled into new products and packaging. Thanks to the fast and simple online test by Interseroh, it is possible to make a first assessment of the recycling capability of packaging with just a few pieces of information needing to be provided. The online tool can be accessed directly via the customer portal of the Dual System Interseroh.

The user enters the data on size, weight and composition of the packaging and the components into the self-explanatory input mask. For further documentation, they can also upload a photograph of the packaging material in question. With one click, the quick analysis starts and the user receives an assessment for the sub-areas of collection, sorting and recycling as well as an overall estimation of the recycling capability. In the customised database, it is immediately visible how environmentally friendly a packaging portfolio already is; additionally, assessments that have already been created can be accessed again.

From the status quo to packaging optimisation: The online tool “Check for Recycling” highlights where companies currently are with their packaging and where there is a concrete need for action. On this basis, in the next step they can then optimise their packaging in a targeted manner using the scientifically founded consulting service “Made for Recycling” from Interseroh. Here, the recycling capability of the packaging is analysed in laboratory tests and concrete recommendations are derived. At the end of the process, usually the companies can prove with the “Made for Recycling” seal that their packaging is highly capable of being recycled. “With our services, it is now even easier for packaging manufacturers and bottlers to achieve fast progress on the way to an environmentally friendly packaging design,” states Markus Müller-Drexel, Managing Director of Interseroh Dienstleistungs GmbH .
