Q: I need
collection of packaging in another European country, who should I contact?
the EPC-Member in your country. He will give you advise and help. You
will receive a quotation for the products or services you ask for.
Q: In which
condition is a packaging defined as empty?
A: Step 1: For a proper reconditioning of a drum or IBC,
all former contents must be removed. An "empty" drum means that
the drum must be as empty as possible using practices commonly employed
to remove materials from packaging, including pouring, pumping and aspirating.
If there is more than 0,5 % of the packaging volume of residual material
in the bottom of the drum, it is not empty. These packaging may be rejected
by the members of the EPC.(See also conditions)
