How can we help you?

Guidelines – do’s and don’ts for recyclable packaging

Do you want to improve the sustainability of your packaging, but are unsure where to start? Then be sure to consult our Design-for-Recycling Guidelines. They explain all the do’s and don’ts for (more) recyclable packaging. We focus among other things on packaging made of various different materials, multiple layers and bio-plastics. We also make recommendations about sleeves, labels, glues and inks.

The guidelines are based on the collection scenarios and recycling processes used for the packaging collected in Belgium. This means you can be sure that all your packaging can be efficiently and sustainably recycled.

Packaging diagnoses – personal and confidential advice

Are you thinking of putting a new packaging on the market and want to be sure that it can be effectively recycled? Have you looked at a number of sustainable alternatives but are uncertain which is the best choice? As a Fost Plus member, you can contact us for personal – and totally confidential – advice, free of charge.

In most cases we can give you a definite answer about the sortability and recyclability of your new packaging after a simple initial interview. If necessary, we can go a step further and put you in contact with an external party for a more in-depth analysis of your packaging.

Contact us via prevention@fostplus.be for more information.

Workshops – info sessions in your company

Do you want to make everyone in your company aware of the importance of sustainable packaging and design-for-recycling? Then contact us to arrange a workshop in your company. We bring together staff and decision-makers from the various departments in your company, including purchasing, marketing, logistics or R&D. We show them examples of packaging that is difficult to sort and recycle and explain why. At the same time, we point out the alternatives that are already available to make your packaging more suitable and recyclable.

Contact us via prevention@fostplus.be for more information.

Benchmarks – analysis of your complete range

For members who put large quantities of packaging on the market, we develop a personalised process. Based on a detailed analysis of your declaration, we identify all the packaging in your range that cannot be recycled or is difficult to recycle. We compare the composition of your packaging with that of companies in similar sectors and suggest recyclable alternatives to those on the market today. Where necessary, we work out a transition project together to systematically phase out the non-recyclable packaging.
