Should the environmental label include the pictogram of a man throwing the packaging into a bin?

This pictogram is an invitation not to release the packaging to the environment.

Its design has not been laid down by law, but the lawmakers have requested the use of a pictogram, freely designed, to invite citizens/consumers to adopt a suitable environmental behaviour. The pictogram was introduced in Ministerial Decree dated 28 June 1989, later repealed by art. 36 of Law no. 14 dated 3 February 2003 (later also repealed by the current Legislative Decree 152/2006).
