for used plastic packaging free of remnants of hazardous products.
For fillers and distributors of hazardous products, which conclude a trademark user contract (licence agreement) with RIGK, we assume the return and recovery of the plastic packaging. For this, the packaging must be labelled with the RIGK trademark and an allocated trademark user number.
The RIGK trademark signals to commercial and industrial final consumers the possibility to return packaging of hazardous products free of remnants to RIGK-G collection points Germany-wide free of charge.
Through the RIGK-G-SYSTEM plastic packaging of hazardous products which due to their products are subject to labelling requirements under the law on hazardous substances and/or the law on dangerous goods and/or on the GHS is recovered. Packaging with gases, explosive, infectious and radioactive substances is excluded from the recovery.

The packaging of hazardous products is re-used as energy. Here, the energy contained in the plastics is used to general electricity, steam and long-distance heating. RIGK guarantees that all selected facilities and systems have the necessary legal licences and authorizations and the preconditions for the re-use as energy within the meaning of the German Closed Substance Cycle Act [Kreislaufwirtschaftsgesetz (KrWG.)] are satisfied.
