Aim and background

The aim of this guide is to be a decision support tool for the management of the recycling centres with the purpose of collecting plastic of better qualities and in greater quantities. The collection at recycling centres will often be part of a larger system for collection of waste plastic, e.g. often supplementing kerbside collection of plastic materials. The overall ambition is that most of the recyclable plastics are sorted out for recycling. The guide addresses both larger, advanced recycling centres amd smaller recycling centres.
