The purpose of the Packaging Ordinance is to avoid or reduce the impact of packaging waste on the environment and regulates the return and disposal/recycling of packaging.
The legislator makes us, as the manufacturer, responsible for compliance with the Packaging Ordinance and the disposal of packaging. Thus, as a manufacturer, we bear the liability for compliance with the legal obligations towards the state institutions.
We fulfil these obligations by commissioning disposal companies for the disposal/recycling of packaging.
We have transferred the take-back and disposal / recycling of sales packaging to the Dual System Zentek. We are registered under the customer number DE4378209943744.
The take-back and disposal/recycling of transport packaging is also handled by Zentek Services GmbH & Co. KG. Our contract number is: TVP-03-105.
Our sales packaging is marked with the "Green Dot". Fees are paid to Duales System Deutschland GmbH (DSD) for this mark.
Sales and transport packaging resulting from orders placed in the ritterwerk online shop can be handed in at all suitable recycling collection points or directly at the ritterwerk during our business hours.
