Percentage responsibility abolished
That the polluter must pay has been a principle that has applied in Sweden since the 1990s and then, among other things, for recycled paper. Newspapers, magazines, free newspapers and direct mail have been collected and become part of the circular economy. Through the government's decision, the paper producers now avoid the responsibility for collecting and recycling and the consequence is that the municipalities must take over the responsibility and build up a system for handling. The costs for this will be transferred via the waste tariff to tenant-owner associations and other property owners, which ultimately means that the residents have to pay. This is a number of hundred notes per household and year.
- I am surprised that this departure from the circular economy is taking place under the supervision of an environmentally partisan Minister of the Environment, especially when it comes to introducing producer responsibility in other areas. The consequence will be that everyone can participate and pay, even those who do not subscribe to a daily newspaper or choose not to receive direct mail.
The reason for the abolished producer responsibility is said to be to save the printed newspapers. But up to half of the collected recycled paper consists of direct mail and tenant-owner associations may also pay for the removal of this.
