What is the purpose of the Recyclability label ?

RecyClass Recyclability Certification evaluates the compatibility of plastic packaging with the entire waste management chain, which includes collection, sorting, recycling, and ability of the recycled material to be reused in its original application.

What are the key guarantees of RecyClass Recyclability Certification ?

RecyClass developed several types of recyclability assessments for plastic packaging, answering the needs of the entire plastic value chain:

  • Design for Recycling Certification classifies qualitatively from A to F the technical recyclability of final plastic packaging.
  • Recyclability Rate Certification rates the effective recyclability of final plastic packaging in a specific geographical area.
  • Letter of compatibility evaluates qualitatively the recyclability of semi-finished packaging.
How to get the Recyclability label?

The labelling by an independent certification body such as Ecocert validates the conformity of your packaging according to the Recyclability standard of Recyclass.

For which category of products?

Only final packaging as placed on the market is eligible for the Certification, as any further alteration of the design may change the recycling compatibility.
Nevertheless, semi-finished packaging can still be evaluated and receive a Letter of Compatibility
