Packaging fees


Recycling should be equal. Agreements should be transparent and fair. That’s why all producers who are affiliated with us pay the same amount for their packaging. FTI is a nonprofit organization – the fees you pay are used to increase recycling rates in Sweden.

The collection and recycling of packaging is financed by packaging fees. Every type of packaging should bear its own costs, and that’s why there are different fees for each type of material.

The costs for collecting and processing packaging from a small producer are the same as from a large producer. The fees are non-negotiable.

Fees for 2023


In 2021, our packaging collection hit a new all-time high – for the tenth consecutive year – and together with our owners (Returkartong, Svensk Plaståtervinning and Metallkretsen), we collected and recycled more packaging than ever. This is one of the reasons why we don’t need to raise the fees for paper, plastic and steel packaging for the coming year, and why the fees for aluminum will be lowered.

Differentiated fees are driving progress


Differentiated fees mean that you pay a lower fee for packaging that is designed for recycling, compared with packaging that is difficult to recycle. The aim of differentiated packaging fees is to reflect the actual cost of recycling. In that way, the fees provide an incentive for producers to design packaging that is easier to recycle. We can help you design packaging that is more sustainable and easier to recycle.
