How To: Setup Packaging Waste

You can store the packaging waste per stock item in the [ Stock | Detail | Properties ] tab along with the weight. Examples of packaging are:

  • Cardboard/Paper
  • Recycled Plastic
  • Non-Recycled Plastic
  • Fabric

The weight is entered up to 2 dp. These are stored in grammes and then used to be exported from Khaos Control so that wastage and packaging reporting can be submitted to the government. For more information please see Packaging Producer Responsibilities.
