How the recycling fund works:

Waste producers and importers will pay as yet undetermined charges to the Recycling Fund per unit of waste they produce, divided into 11 categories.
* The 11 categories of waste are: car batteries and accumulators, waste oils, tires, paper, glass, scrap cars, electronic waste, plastic materials, ferrous packaging, multi-layered packaging, mercury bulbs.
* The Fund's board will then allocate the money to businesses and projects that recycle waste.
