Join Ecoembes

25 years encouraging circular packaging

More than 15,000 businesses rely on us today to help them meet their household waste-related legal requirements. By paying the Green Dot fee, which serves as the foundation for the whole recycling management system, they are the ones who support Spain's system for recycling household packaging.

The towns' collection of waste placed in the yellow (plastic, cans, and carton) and blue (paper and cardboard packaging) bins, as well as their subsequent sorting and recycling to create new raw materials, are paid for with this contribution. We complete a cycle using the circular economy's guiding principles in this manner.

The evolution of society and the regulations on waste will drive Ecoembes to keep changing and will lead to the creation of a new SCRAP that will expand our area of activity to commercial packaging.

What procedures must you follow to join?

You can apply to join Ecoembes if your business is in charge of marketing packaged goods. By doing this, you will be able to fulfil your legal requirements under the Packaging Law, as well as take advantage of a number of benefits and services that come with being a Circular Company.
