THE PACKAGING LICENSE PROVIDERS​

Post contains advertising links: The providers of packaging licenses in Germany mainly include the dual systems. These are the companies that organize the recycling of household waste. In addition, there are brokers or third-party providers. These companies can also be licensed in accordance with the German Packaging Act. However, since they are not operators of dual systems themselves, they have to register the packaging quantities licensed from them with a dual system. We have also included the contractual partners of the brokers in our list.

Packaging license providers: how do they differ?

The license itself is the same for all providers. It makes no difference from which of the above companies the packaging license is purchased. The Central Office accepts them all. The packaging license providers differ above all in the price, the contract period and reimbursements. We have summarized a clear comparison on our price comparison page.

Cheap and expensive minimum prices

Many providers charge basic fees or minimum sales for the annual contract. These costs are quantity-independent, i.e. they are incurred for each contract. Especially with small packaging quantities, these basic costs are particularly important. An example: The company EKO-PUNKT requires a minimum turnover of €100 for the annual contract. This form of contract is not worthwhile for small quantities. If you really only have small amounts of packaging material per year, you should choose a provider with low basic costs.

Different contract periods

As a rule, the dual systems offer annual contracts. However, some packaging license providers prescribe a minimum contract period of 2 years. Landbell is currently the only provider with this long term. Especially if there is uncertainty about whether and how long the business will be continued, you should choose a provider with whom the contract can be terminated annually. An exception is Reclay. No annual contract is concluded here, but only individual licensing for the ordered quantities. With Reclay, the license is not automatically renewed and there is no notice period to be observed.

Some providers offer refunds

In addition to the term and price, subsequent reimbursement is also an important part of the contract. Young companies in particular, small Ebay or Amazon dealers are often not yet able to plan their sales precisely. This makes it difficult for them to estimate the packaging quantity. If there is still uncertainty as to whether the reported quantity of packaging will actually be sold, a provider should be chosen who reimburses costs already paid. Lizenzero, Veolia, Der Grüne Punkt and PreZero Dual are currently offering refunds. However, the extent of the refund and conditions attached to the refund differ. We compared the conditions of the individual providers:

  • Veolia: full reimbursement for royalties in excess of minimum sales. The reimbursement will be paid out with the annual statement as a credit note and is due for payment within 14 days. (Source: AGB Veolia Umweltservice Dual GmbH)
  • Lizenzero: The provider grants adjustments to the current license quantities for the current license year during the year. If the adjustment during the year is made by August 31st, quantity reductions will be reimbursed directly. (Source: Lizenzero sample contract)
  • Grüner Punkt: The provider grants refunds. These are determined in the year-end volume report. If the finally reported quantities per material type fall below the previously announced forecast quantities, a refund will be paid up to a shortfall of 10%. Customers have the opportunity to change their forecast quantities until August 31st. of the current year for the current license year can be changed free of charge. (Source: Der Grüne Punkt – Duales System Deutschland GmbH AGB)
  • PreZero Dual: Reimbursements of overreported quantities are possible in principle. The provider attaches the following 2 conditions to a refund:
    1. The annual turnover is at least €5,000 net.
    2. The volume reduction will take place until August 31st. of the current license year.

Package deals: often a bad choice

Some providers have fixed package deals in addition to the license for individual quantities. They offer a license for certain combinations of packaging material. These deals are often advertised as “starter deals” that allow small retailers and manufacturers in particular to get a packaging license cheaply. However, you very often get cheaper offers from other suppliers for the packaging quantities from these deals. Another disadvantage of these deals is that the packaging quantities cannot be easily adjusted. If there are more or less packaging quantities, it is difficult to adjust the fixed deal quantities. This results in high costs afterwards if changes to the quantities are necessary.
