Why is the collection of PET and aluminium so important?
PET and aluminium are important secondary raw materials and resources for the recycling cycle. For the recycling of PET bottles and aluminium cans, a high collection rate is essential.
Studies show that the deposit system ensures a higher recycling rate and availability – and thus also a functioning circular economy. Not to mention the fact that fewer PET bottles and aluminium cans end up being thrown away in general waste or in nature.
The collection of PET bottles via the deposit system enables high-quality recycling. It enables recycled plastic (recyclates) and metals to be re-used in drinks containers.
