How Duales System Deutschland GmbH operates
Closing the loop: Manufacturers and fillers participate with their sales packaging in DSD’s dual system. DSD pays for household near collection, sorting and recycling. Fillers supply retailers with packed products. Consumers place empty packaging in DSD's collection containers after use. Waste management firms collect and sort the packaging waste which is forwarded to recycling plants. Used packaging is turned into secondary raw materials and new products in the course of recycling.
