    The proposed changes to the act on waste define the rights and obligations i.e. entrepreneurs recycling packaging waste (the entry "recovery process or other than recycling" has been removed). The entities introducing products in packaging will be obliged to ensure the recycling of packaging waste of the same type as packaging waste resulting from the same type of packaging as the packaging in which they introduced the products. What else is worth knowing?
  • 10 advantages of using sustainable drainage systems
    The benefits of using sustainable drainage systems are mainly the simulation of the operation of natural systems and the integration of installations with the landscape as a visual structure, which apart from the obvious environmental and social benefits, creates habitats and promotes groundwater recharge. The limitations of the possibilities of using sustainable drainage systems result from the requirements of large areas, frequent service and the need for social acceptance for above-ground tanks. Despite this, sustainable rainwater management has many advantages over a conventional system (i.e. collective sewerage system).

      Question: We are a company that prints advertising items (posters, leaflets, banners) with the customer's logo at the customer's request. At the customer's request, we send these articles directly to their branches (300 locations) - e.g. one item of a given item to one location, therefore, instead of one package, we send, for example, 300 packages. We ship by courier from the customer's account. We are only the place of shipment (sender) and the customer is the payer. So who is the introducer of the packaging? We or the client?
