Frequently asked questions

GVÖ Gebinde: Awesome! We'll all meet again!
  1. Who is the GVÖ?

    GVÖ is a community of 40 shareholders and over 200 licence partners. As a recovery company for sales packaging of the mineral oil industry, we provide a nationwide collection and environmentally sound recovery of used, completely emptied cans, canisters, and drums - quite simply with the GVÖ take-back system.

  2. How do I get rid of my oil cans?

    The following applies to collection points:

    According to the German Packaging Act (VerpackG), packaging, e.g. oil cans, are subject to strict conditions and regulations regarding the take-back obligation. The GVÖ is the recovery company for packaging of the mineral oil industry, which relieves you of your take-back and recovery obligation as well as the obligation to produce supporting documents. The GVÖ take-back system is financed by the licence partners. For you as a collection point, the service is free of charge. Simply register online - and you will already benefit from the perfect take-back service of the GVÖ.


    The following applies to consumers:

    Return the empty containers undamaged and sealed to where they were purchased. Don’t throw oil packaging into the yellow bag or the yellow bin or into the household waste after use! This is because the remaining oil in the packaging pollutes the environment if disposed of improperly. The sales outlets of products of the GVÖ licence partners take back the empty packaging free of charge and pass them on to the GVÖ. GVÖ then ensures environmentally sound recovery in certified specialised companies. In this way, oil packaging is added back to the recovered substance cycle.
