EPR Paper Tax France

EPR Paper Tax France

The Paper Tax came into force in January 2005 as part of the French Regulatory Environmental Code. 

The aim of the legislation is to reduce the amount of paper being disposed of in general household waste instead of being separated and recycled. The principal organisation assisting companies affected by the Paper Tax is Ecofolio.
