Estimation of the net cost of collection, transport and management of separately collected packaging waste from households

A report prepared by Deloitte at the request and in close cooperation with the Polish Confederation Lewiatan

April 2021

This report discusses the estimated financial costs relating to the separate collection, transport and management of packaging waste from households based on a theoretical model developed on the basis of macroeconomic, market, strategic, technical, operational, tax and financial assumptions.

The direct aim of the report is to define estimated financial costs of collection, transport and management of separately collected packaging waste from households classified by individual fractions, including key polymer types, such as: PE, PP, PET, PVC and EPS impacting the net cost value.

The net cost, specified in accordance with article 8A of directive 2008/98/EC is an essential element to estimate the input of entities introducing packaging to the market. Standards established for the extended producer responsibility systems, set forth in the framework waste directive, indicate all the necessary cost elements that should be borne by the entities introducing packaging to the market.

Pursuant to the provisions of article 8A of the framework waste directive member states, under the EPR obligations, take necessary measures to ensure that the level of financial contribution of introducers (producers introducing prepackaged products to the market) covers the total cost of managing waste resulting from the introduction of products to the EU market.
