More than 3,170 contracted companies now participate in the Hellenic Recovery Recycling Corporation (HERRCO), which is responsible for the organization and operation of the Collective Alternative Management System. This is a major success for HERRCO, given that the majority of packaging placed on the Greek market comes from these companies, which are HERRCO’s exclusive source of income. This demonstrates that HERRCO has the widespread acceptance and trust of the business community to achieve its collective purpose and fulfil its mission.

Through their participation in the System, HERRCO's contracted businesses properly fulfil their legal and financial obligation to ensure the collection and recycling of packaging and contribute to all the System’s actions (projects, investments, communication) based on the financial contribution defined by the framework that has been approved by the Public Administration. Thus, contracted businesses make a substantial contribution to the organization and the operation of Greece's recycling.
