Green MT obtains Eco Contribution Exemption Certificates for 175 producer members


The
Approving Body (Eco Contribution Exemptions) has issued 175 Eco Contribution
Exemption Certificates to members of Green MT Waste Packaging Compliance
Scheme. Green MT submitted an application on their behalf earlier on this year. In
total these 175 producers are projecting to place 10,875 tons of packaging
waste on the market.

The materials include glass, plastic and metal cans. As
thus under the obligations of Legal Notice 84 of 2010, Green MT is obliged to
recover 70% of the said weight factor in 2013. Thus the Scheme needs to recover
a weight factor of 7613 tons to make sure that the legal obligation is reached.
This recovery does not include the recovery required for those Scheme members
that do not have an Eco Contribution Exemption Certificate.

In
2011, Green MT members who held an Exemption Certificate actually placed over
13,600 tons of Packaging Waste on the market. Other Green Mt members in the
same year placed 6500 tons of Packaging Waste on the market thus a total of
20,100 tons. Recovery in the same year reached 13,850 tons.

As
such in calendar year 2011, Green Mt was legally obliged to recover 70% for its
members exempt from Eco Contribution, thus 9520 tons and 56% on behalf its
other members thus 3640 tons. In total a recovery of 13, 160 tons.

Green
MT, The National Authorized Waste Packaging Compliance Scheme continues to
operate and reach its legal obligations and insists that all Schemes should
operate on a fair and level playing field, which is currently not the case.

Green
MT producer members can once again rest assured that the Scheme will reach its
recovery targets for 2013 and looks forward to a year of continued cooperation
with all stakeholders to recover more and more packaging waste and recyclables.

Together…we
can do it better!
