What is Recyclass?

RecyClass TM consists of three elements:

  • The online tool.
  • An optional certification for a single package regarding its recyclability,
  • A label which can be licensed after successful certification and used for marketing purposes in connection with the certified package.

The online tool will show you the extent to which a certain package is suitable for recycling. A scale resembling the well-known energy efficiency rating from “A” to “F” will help you in your assessment. An easily recycled package will receive an “A” rating, while an “F” will indicate that incineration is the only feasible option. In order to assess your package and its classification please use this web tool.

You will gradually approach a rating result by answering questions relating to the package. Specific knowledge about recycling is not required as we will help you with explanations. Finally, you can choose to have your package certified by an expert.
