Exclusion: Durable Packaging

Durable packaging refers to packaging that has a useful life of at least five years, is intended to facilitate longer term storage of the product and remains with the product throughout its useful life. Where only a portion of the packaging is considered integral to the long-term use or storage of the product, this portion may be excluded from the steward report because it is not designated PPP. The following are examples of durable packaging and should not be included in your report

  • CD/ DVD cases
  • Power tool cases
  • Vinyl record covers
  • The boxboard used to contain, store and transport pieces of a board game or puzzle.
