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).

At TOMRA Sorting, regardless of the collection system operated, we are able to optimally sort the valuable fractions from packaging waste with high efficiency and purity.

We currently operate packaging waste sorting units at packaging MRF’s in many countries including Belgium, Canada, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, Spain, UK and USA. Amongst the typical packaging waste sorting tasks that are performed by TOMRA Sorting 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).
