Collection & Sorting

In most European countries, citizens either have beverage cartons collected at their doorstep or take them to collection points nearby.      

FACT: Separate collection is the most important prerequisite
for driving beverage carton recycling.

 
After the materials, including beverage cartons, are collected, they are being sorted at specialised material sorting facilities either manually or by using innovative automation technology. This technology uses dry-mechanic techniques to separate materials and waste streams based on specific atomic density. This ensures efficient processing of recovered valuable materials.

 

 

Once being sorted, the beverage cartons are baled and sent to one of more than 20 dedicated paper mills in Europe for recycling into new products.
