WUR publishes public report on plastic packaging waste

14 July 2014

Wageningen UR Food & Biobased Research (WUR) has published a report on the composition of separately collected plastic waste, including the corresponding statistics.
The composition of Dutch separately collected post-consumer plastic packaging waste has been determined for 23 different municipalities during the time period of 2010-2013. In this report weighted averages are presented based on the previously analysed samples. The most important packaging types present are in order of relevance: PE film, PET rigid packages (mostly trays and thermoformed trays), PP rigid packages (mostly butter tubs, yoghurt pots), PE flasks and PET bottles (Nedvang Recycle News, 10 July 2014).
