Reduction in space for burying waste, greenhouse gas emissions and leakage of contaminants from soil and water from land filling led lawmakers in many countries, including Israel, to enact laws requiring complex packaging bearing special assessments. These rules require reducing the amount of packaging and the amount of hazardous materials found in them. Further the packaging laws apply the principles of extended warranties which require manufacturers and importers to collect and recycle packaging, either directly or through companies with whom they contact. In order to implement the Packaging Act, local authorities and businesses are required to separate packaging material from other waste types so it can be recyclable or recoverable. Does the packaging law apply to packaging material you use, import, produce or buy? Is this package hazardous waste?
