The dual system is one of the largest purchasers for waste management services. Throughout Germany the dual systems assign disposal companies with the collection and processing of used sales packaging.


The engaging of contracts takes place through tenders. The allocation of contract areas and proportions is based on market shares, which are calculated by a clearing center.

Free market economy means competition with fair rules. Competition and tendering are essential for efficiency in packaging disposal and waste management in General.

Der Grüne Punkt – Duales System Deutschland GmbH (DSD) regularly calls for tenders for contracts for the collection and sorting of lightweight packaging and glass packaging.

Information about current calls can be found here and on our tendering platform.

The Central Body (ZSVR) is required under Section 26(1) second sentence Nos 14 to 16 of the Packaging Act to publish the (provisionally) allocable market shares determined. The (provisionally) allocable market shares can be found on the ZSVR website.

The DSD market share and the individual cost shares are available at Grüner Punkt Portal for Waste Management Companies.

The Grüner Punkt Portal for Waste Management Companies enables you, among other things, to report substance flows and to display and close your balances. Thus, a transparent and standardized documentation of your data is guaranteed.
