Packaging Sorting - Waste and Recycling - Material Recycling

Packaging waste is mostly made up of different polymers, beverage cartons, paper and glass. Depending on the country in question, different collection systems apply and the material will invariably arrive in different conditions to the MRF’s (Materials Recovery Facility). However, this does not present us with a problem. At TOMRA Sorting, regardless of the collection system operated, we are able to optimally sort the valuable fractions with high efficiency and purity. We currently operate sorting units at packaging MRF’s in many countries including Belgium, Canada, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, Spain, UK and USA.

Amongst the typical sorting tasks that are performed by TOMRA in such plants are the sorting of polymers according to their material type (PET, HDPE, PP, PS, mixed polymers, etc), beverage cartons and paper (de-inking and cardboard fractions).
