Association Réseau Consignes
Association Réseau Consignes (ARC) aims to organise, promote and control a system for the reuse of returnable glass packaging in Romandie. It is an association that brings together producers and distributors to help them integrate deposit schemes into their businesses and activities.
The Services Industriels de Genève (SIG) and their eco21 programme, in close collaboration with Réseau Consignes and the City of Carouge, re-launched a Geneva-based recycling scheme for food containers with a packaging deposit scheme. With this action, the canton of Geneva is developing its “Waste & Circular Economy” programme.
As part of this project, they launched a pilot phase in the municipality of Carouge in December 2021 to test this opportunity to promote the reuse of packaging. By purchasing one of the pilot project’s returnable products customers contribute to the collective effort to reduce disposable and not necessarily recyclable waste.
