Sorting Rules

Separation of waste is essential to enable its recycling and is in the hands of all citizens.

This separation by the consumer follows the stage of sorting the waste in the consolidation centers responsible for the more accurate and accurate selection of waste from previously segmented packaging (paper, plastic and glass).

For example, plastic packaging can be divided into the following categories:
• PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) - bottled water and soft drinks;
• HDPE (Polyethylene of High Density) - hygiene products and detergents;
• PVC (polyvinyl chloride) - detergents;
• LDPE (Low Density Polyethylene) - pallet bags and film;
• PP (polypropylene) - boxes of CDs;
• PS (polystyrene) - yoghurts and egg cartons;
• Others.
