Do you know about the SUP law? It’s the new legislation concerning single-use plastics, commonly known as the Anti-Plastic Law, and it has influenced laws regarding waste management obligations and product fees.
Since December 11, 2023, the Ministry of Climate and Environment has published regulations regarding fees for single-use products, which will be effective from January 1, 2024. This means that as of January 1, 2024, there will be an obligation to collect and register consumer fees for single-use packaging from end users.
But what does this mean for you and your establishment? Which packaging is subject to fees? Who qualifies as an end user? What exactly is a consumer fee? Let us explain:
According to the SUP law, single-use products are those made entirely or partially of plastic and not intended for multiple uses. In contrast, reusable packaging is designed for multiple uses, minimizing its environmental impact. The fees for single-use plastic packaging are as follows according to the law:
0.20 zł net per piece for beverage cups, including lids and caps
0.25 zł net per piece for food containers
