The number of clients involved in the EKO‑KOM System has remained on practically the same level in the long-term. The number of importers, manufacturers and fillers of packaging and packaged products, who have decided to transfer their statutory obligations to the EKO‑KOM System fluctuates throughout the year as a result of termination of activities or merger of some companies. We can state that, in the long-term, the number of clients is practically constant. 81% of packaging is introduced onto the market in the Czech Republic by clients participating in the EKO‑KOM System.

  2011 2012 2013 2014 2015
Number of municipalities 5.993 6.025 6.057 6.073 6.085
Number of inhabitants 10.457.137 10.488.753 10.471.722 10.483.885 10.479.423

Total recovered waste 621.273 t 607.005 t 635.892 t 690.047 t 730.662 t

 

The table indicates a slight increase in the number of involved municipalities and inhabitants participating in the separated waste system. At the present time, more than 72% of the population of the Czech Republic actively participates in waste separation, i.e. almost three quarters of the population! The achieved percentage of recycling of packaging waste has increased, which is most important from the viewpoint of the EU requirements on the Czech Republic.
