Quality of recyclate outputs
More recycling, less rejection
It’s obviously important to make it simple for people to recycle their waste. The easier it is the more likely people will use the facility - leading to higher recycling rates and less waste.
But it’s equally important to make sure that the recycled material you collect is of high quality. If recyclates contain less contamination the options for reprocessing increase considerably and, even better, they can fetch a higher value.
