Packaging Marking

1. Packaging Recycling Mark
(Annex № 3 to Art. 5, para.1, it.2 of the Ordinance on Packaging & Packaging Waste)

Note: In the middle of the three arrows, the digits, specified in Annex № 2 to Article 5, para. 1, it. 1, are placed and the abbreviation for the packaging material from the same Annex is placed under the graphic sign.

2. Separate Collection Mark

Packaging should be marked with the separate collection sign as well. Its grafic design is not regulated by the Ordinance. In the EU member-states the "tidyman" sign is adopted and used widely. You could either use this sign or put text "For separate collection".

3. Trade Mark of the Recovery Organization

Being member of a recovery organization, the packaging of the goods released by you on the market should be marked also with the respective trade mark of the organization.

Marking that indicates affiliation of packaging to the collective system organized by ECOPACK BULGARIA is "THE GREEN DOT" (DER GRÜNE PUNKT).

The payment of the remuneration to ECOPACK BULGARIA gives the right to the respective producer or importer of packed goods, placed on the market in the Republic of Bulgaria, to put on their packaging the DER GRŰNE PUNKT trade mark.

The use of the indicated mark on the territory of the Republic of Bulgaria by persons, who have not signed a contract with ECOPACK BULGARIA, is against the law.
