Kite Packaging launches online compliance calculator

Kite Packaging has developed a new online calculator system to help its customers to comply with the Packaging Regulations

The online packaging supplier said it launched the system due to the changes made to the Packaging Regulations, which sees new targets for packaging recycling and recovery from this year until 2017.

Under The Producer Responsibility (Packaging Waste) Regulations 2007, companies which exceed turnovers of £2million are required to assess the amount of packaging they handle, and contribute towards the cost of recycling in the UK – and this year that obligation is set to rise.

A spokesperson from Kite Packaging said:  “2013 will see some big changes to the Regulations, but here at Kite we are urging our customers not to panic.  If you are unsure of how to calculate your obligation or have never complied before then Kite can provide free advice to avoid any penalties.

“To make the issue of compliance a little easier to grasp, we have launched a live on site compliance calculator for our online customers. If you buy your packaging online from us the good news is you can find out exactly what you have used via the My Account section of the website – simply log in and click on the Packaging Regs tab.”

The firm said that the calculator will automatically produce a report showing the weights of all the packaging materials its customers have bought from Kite over a user-defined period, as well as a graph for customers to see packaging usage at a glance.
