To make it easier for all companies affected by this law, Sweden's business and industrial sector has joined forces to create a common system for the collection and recycling of packaging. A service organization, FTI, has been established.

Today nearly 10 000 companies are affiliated with FTI. They account for most of all packaging in the Swedish market. Collection levels have increased and in most cases exceed Government objectives.
