Under EU guidelines on extended producer responsibility, producers and importers, including online retailers, are obligated to assume responsibility at the end of the product cycle for the products and packaging they place on the market.
Producers and importers must pay for the recovery of and/or financially support the collection and recycling of their products and packaging.
In Austria, this responsibility is regulated by the Waste Management Act 2002, as well as the Packaging Ordinance.[Links to the documents]
