The Einwegkunststofffondsgesetz establishes a fund where impacted manufacturers make payments based on product type and mass. The primary beneficiaries are municipalities responsible for street cleaning.
Act on the Single-Use Plastic Fund aims to avoid and reduce the impacts of single-use plastic products on the environment, as well as to promote innovative and sustainable business models, products, and materials. Affected are plastic-containing items, such as cigarette filters, tampons, cleaning wipes and packaging for products intended for immediate consumption.
