MISSION

The decision of our country to harmonize its legislation with EU regulations has brought certain obligations for companies in Macedonia who market / sell products packed in any packaging form.

This integration of the European regulation 94/62/EC on packaging and packaging waste in our law, was an occasion to form the non-profit company for packaging waste management - Pakomak.

Besides the 11 founding members of the company, Pakomak cooperates with more than 300 other companies, and is still open for new members. Pakomak provides environmentally safe and economically viable solutions of packaging waste to all of them.

Manufacturers and importers of products packed in any type of package, now have a legal obligation to organize a system for collection, selection and recycling of their packaging waste, which at the end, is given to the final users. With this principle of “extended producer responsibility”, all entities in the chain and the final users (manufacturers, packer, importers, and distributors) will have a possibility of reuse or use of the packaging material that has been placed on the market.

The mission of Pakomak is to ensure responsible, efficient and most economically affordable management of the customers packaging waste in accordance with their legal obligations.

Only a responsible attitude towards packaging waste will minimize negative environmental impact and ensure a better quality of life for all.
