The packaging compliance schemes in Germany determine the properties of
the bags. The specifications are based on the mini-maxi principle, which states that as little material as necessary
for as much packaging as possible. After all, the yellow bag is only intended for light packaging waste such as
yoghurt pots, tins and cans, aluminium trays and drinks cartons. It is not for guzzling up heavy waste such as
toys or frying pans, because that’s not packaging. Another advantage of the thin material is that it is transparent!
So waste collection staff can see immediately whether a yellow bag contains the right waste or not.
