The Top 5 Things to Know About the Mauser Packaging Solutions Used Container Collection Program

Every year, Mauser Packaging Solutions collects tens of millions of used, empty IBCs and plastic and steel drums from companies around the world. Why? It’s the right and responsible thing to do!


We are committed to “Redefining Sustainability” and providing solutions that reduce your carbon footprint. Collection is the first step in responsibly extending the life cycle of industrial packaging and we want to share the top 5 things you should know about our collection program.


The Top 5 Things You Should Know:


    1. Returning Empty Packaging Reduces Your Carbon Footprint
      Returning empty packaging is not only good for the environment, but also supports your own sustainability goals. By returning empty packaging, you are diverting waste from landfills, preserving natural resources, and reducing your carbon footprint. In one year alone, our collection and reconditioning program helped customers prevent more than 1.5 million tons of greenhouse gases from entering the atmosphere. That’s equivalent to the greenhouse gas emissions from 293,000 cars!
    2. Locations Near You
      With more than 75 locations around the world, Mauser Packaging Solutions has the largest collection and reconditioning network for industrial packaging. It’s likely we have a location close to you! Our local experts have the regulatory knowledge that’s critical for safe, and proper handling of empty IBCs and plastic and steel drums.
    3. Scheduling Collection is Quick and Hassle-Free
      Our collection service is quick and hassle-free. It’s as easy as sending an email or giving us a call (in the coming months, you will be able to use our new mobile app!). If you have different types of empty packaging, such as IBCs and drums, we can consolidate this in one collection. We combine efficiency with safe and fast handling to free up your storage space and keep your workplace safe.
    4. Not our package? No problem.
      Mauser Packaging Solutions collects empty IBCs and drums from most major manufacturers, including our competitors. This includes 275G/1,000L and 330G/1,250L Composite IBCs, 30G/114L and 55G/208L open or closed-head plastic drums, and 55G/208L open or closed-head steel drums that meet certain criteria.
    5. Diverse Product Portfolio
      We’re dedicated to helping you achieve true sustainability at scale. That’s why we offer a range of washed and rebottled IBCs and reconditioned plastic and steel drums. Choose from various specifications and sizes for both UN and non-UN applications.
