Due to the restructuring of both the environmental product fee system and of the waste control system, the continuity of the data series was broken. According to the latest data, for the year 2012, income generated from environmental product fees on packaging materials amounted to 45.5 billion forints. From this amount, the budget spent HUF 7.5 billion on waste recovery. Adjusting for the operating expenses of the state waste management agency financed from the same source, this is still less than 20% of the revenues generated.
