RECYCLING - How does a sorting plant work

RECYCLABILITY - a definition

Plastics must meet four conditions for a product to be considered recyclable:

  • The product must be made with a plastic that is collected for recycling, has market value and/or is supported by a legislatively mandated program.
  • The product must be sorted and aggregated into defined streams for recycling processes.
  • The product can be processed and reclaimed/recycled with commercial recycling processes.
  • The recycled plastic becomes a raw material that is used in the production of new products.
