Environmental contribution 2019


Bad news in sight for the plastic sector: from 1st January 2019 environmental contributions for packaging of all types of material will change.

The Board of Directors of Conai, after hearing the opinions of the waste recycling consortia Ricrea, CiAl, Comieco, Corepla, Rilegno and Coreve, has decided to change the environmental contribution for steel, aluminium, paper, plastics, wooden and glass packaging in order to ensure the economic resources necessary to reach the goals of recycle/recovery of packaging on the entire national territory.

Therefore, from the first of January 2019 the environmental contribution for steel packaging will be reduced to 3.00 euro per ton and the one relative to aluminium will be halved (15 €/t), whereas the facilitation of the reuse of wooden pallets will be reinforced. On the other hand, from the same date, the environmental contribution for the packaging in paper and cardboard (20 €/t), plastics (on average 263 €/t) and glass (24 €/t) will grow.

Motivations for the increase are vary depending on the type of material: for plastics, for example, the cause is to be looked for in the strong growth of package waste reported by the regions in the south of Italy, unfortunately of the poor quality, which has generated additional costs for the selection of material and waste management.
