Setting up or expanding a system for sorting of plastic waste at a recycling centre

There is a range of issues that should be addressed when defining the system for collection of plastics at a recycling station. The aim is at the same time to increase the amount of plastic for recycling and still have a simple and userfriendly system. Also, costs (for operation, treatment and transport) should be kept at a minimum and income (where possible) from sales should be optimised. However, these aspects most often conflict with each other.
