Streams – Packaging

Packaging – let our expert team guide you

Packaging compliance is complex and requires interpretation, which can lead to questions. It can be difficult to work out what you need to do and when you need to do it. Our expert team is ready to assist you.


How ERP makes it easy for your business

Our expert team will lead you through the process, ensuring your packaging data is as accurate as possible and that you remain compliant. For total peace of mind, we check your data with a fine-tooth comb before submission.

Our knowledge of the packaging market means we always get the best value recovery and recycling evidence for you.


This waste recycling category includes paper, cardboard, plastics, polystyrenes, steel, aluminium, glass and wood. Many of these materials can be recycled into new products and recycling packaging reduces the amount of waste that is sent to landfill and saves natural resources.

We are delighted to support ‘Batteries for Barretstown’ and have rolled out the battery collection programme across several of our acute hospitals and are looking to extend this into the New Year.
