Altstoff Recycling Austria AG

Altstoff Recycling Austria AG (ARA) is Austria‘s leading collection and recovery system (CRS) for packaging. We offer a full compliance service to all businesses that are subject to the Austrian Packaging Ordinance. By entering a compliance and license agreement with us and paying the license fees due, businesses can transfer to us the obligations they have under the ordinance. We use the revenues from license fees to organise and finance the collection, sorting and recovery of packaging waste in Austria. Our modern and comprehensive recycling schemes for all types of packaging are available to consumers and businesses all across the country. The compliance service for glass packaging is co-organised by ARA and Austria Glas Recycling, the CRS for glass packaging.
