Pursuant to the ordinance on the avoidance of packaging waste of 12.06.1991 we draw your attention to the following important information:

2.) EDN uses only recyclable packing materials.
3.) Where EDN as the supplier is obligated in accordance with the packaging ordinance to take back the freight packing, the purchase shall bear the costs of the return transportation and the recycling. Regardless of this ruling the purchaser can recycle the packing material itself locally at an approved waste disposal centre. Your responsible chamber of commerce will name you the collection points of such approved waste disposal centres.
