Role of compliance schemes
With there being thousands of obligated Producers, the purchase of PRNs most often occurs via Packaging Compliance Schemes, such as Valpak, who represent large numbers of companies to which the legislation applies.
At Valpak we buy PRNs of the relevant type and quantity in order to offset our members’ obligations in the below materials. The types of PRNs we buy are:
- Recovery (energy from waste)
NB - Valpak Compliance Scheme members that also have a Valpak Recycling Services contract can receive a number of benefits, such as reducing compliance costs via own waste PRNs. Download our brochure to find out more.
