VerenA – Packaging Recovery for Agriculture

What is the VerenA SYSTEM?

Packaging Recovery for Agriculture – or VerenA – is a take-back system for taking back and recycling of Big Bags from the agricultural sector that have been in contact with non-hazardous filling materials. The VerenA-SYSTEM is an initiative jointly run by the participating associations from the agricultural sector and RIGK as brand owner and system operator. Through the VerenA-SYSTEM, consumers / waste producers from the agricultural sector can conveniently drop off their empty Big Bags bearing the VerenA trademark free of charge at up to 400 planned VerenA collection points on specific dates. Likewise, VerenA enables the return and recycling of the transport and secondary packaging that arises in connection with the drop-off of Big Bags.

Who stands behind the VerenA-SYSTEM

Packaging Recovery for Agriculture – VerenA – is the system for taking back agricultural Big Bags that is operated by the German agricultural industry in cooperation with four industry associations and RIGK. Together, these associations make up the “Interessengemeinschaft (IG) VerenA” (VerenA Interest Group). These industry associations are:
