What are the different PRN grades?

There are six materials for which a business might have an obligation; plastic, paper, glass, aluminium, steel and wood. Businesses must calculate their packaging obligation for the compliance year for each specific material, purchasing enough PRNs to cover those that they have performed activity on.

Trade with Clarity
